Iran, March 11, 2020—The number of coronavirus infections in Iran has soared in the past days and has spread across the country. On Tuesday, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced that the coronavirus death toll in 127 cities of 31 provinces has exceeded 3,000.
A member of the Majles (Regime’s Parliament) of the “National Committee for Coronavirus” said on Monday that "the disease will reach its peak in the next two weeks" and the number of those hospitalized will increase by 10-15% daily”.
The hospitals in the country lack facilities and medical support. According to the statement of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) on Monday, “dozens of dedicated physicians and nurses have contracted the virus while treating their patients and lost their lives.”
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), hailed those honorable and committed physicians and nurses and extended her condolences to their families and the Iranian medical community. Mrs. Rajavi said that these dedicated men and women are the source of honor and pride for a nation that has refused to surrender to the mullahs' inhuman regime in the past 40 years and has insisted on its national pride and human values while challenging the religious dictatorship ruling Iran.
Meanwhile, members of the Resistance Units, a network of MEK activists, and the rebellious and defiant youths in Iran continued their activities against the regime to reflect the will and desire of the Iranian people to overthrow the rule of the mullahs and live in freedom.
On Monday, MEK Resistance Units in Karaj and Isfahan installed banners of Mrs. Rajavi with the slogan: “Maryam Rajavi: [IRGC’s] medical and health care resources must be placed at the disposal of the public” and “the skyrocketing number of coronavirus victims is because of the regime’s cover-ups on the outbreak.”
In Karaj, Babolsar and Zahedan defiant youth burned the banner of the IRGC Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani who was killed in a U.S. drone strike in January. The youth were chanting the slogan: “Our response to Khamenei’s coronavirus: We’ll fight fire with fire.”

They also bravely installed handwritten slogans of the Iranian Resistance leaders Maryam and Massoud Rajavi: “Massoud Rajavi: Don’t be afraid [of the coronavirus] and aim your anger at the regime instead.” “Maryam Rajavi: [IRGC’s] medical and health care resources must be placed at the disposal of the public.”
