Coronavirus pandemic in Iran

The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI / MEK) announced this afternoon, Wednesday, October 28, 2020, that the Coronavirus has taken the lives of more than 135,300 in 460 cities across Iran. The death toll in various provinces include: 32,761 in Tehran, 10,182 in Khorasan Razavi, 7,497 in Isfahan, 5,106 in Gilan, 4,781 in East Azerbaijan, 3,952 in West Azerbaijan, 3,748 in Alborz, 3,721 in Golestan, 3,551 in Fars, 2,888 in Kermanshah 2,284 in North Khorasan, 2,120 in Kerman, 2,096 in Yazd, 1,927 in Markazi, 1,367 in Qazvin, 1,079 in South Khorasan, and 979 in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer Ahmad.

New official record

In an unprecedented announcement of the regime's engineered statistics, Tehran's Health Ministry Spokesman said that the number of fatalities over the past 24 hours reached 415 and 6824 new cases have been reported. 5012 patients are in critical condition. As such, the official number of fatalities has doubled in less than three weeks.

Today, the regime's president Hassan Rouhani once again expressed worry about the real proportions of the Coronavirus crisis and said: "Sometimes there are conflicting things being said in various provinces by different individuals in their interviews, which causes confusion among people. In accordance with [Khamenei's] guidance, we have appointed a spokesperson so that people can trust only his statements. ... From now on, his statements will be the official statements."

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), described the increasing and unbridled trend of Coronavirus patients and victims as the direct outcome of the inhumane and unpatriotic policies of Khamenei and Rouhani. Human lives are completely worthless in their eyes. She said while the regime spends exorbitant amounts of money on procuring smuggled weapons, its nuclear and missiles projects, and warmongering, export of terrorism and fundamentalism, Iranian workers, nurses, medical personnel, white-color workers and teachers cannot afford basic daily needs due to the unhinged inflation.

This is while entities controlled by Khamenei have amassed more than a trillion dollars worth of assets belonging to the Iranian people. These funds remain untouched. The control of these entities must be turned over to the Iranian people. Moreover, one armed forces is enough for the regime. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the paramilitary Bassij must be dismantled and their budgets must instead be re-allocated to the fight against the Coronavirus.
