Saeed Namaki, the Islamic Republic Health Minister, praised his work, IRGC and Basij once again claiming the “third wave of coronavirus has been contained in Iran.” Rouhani, the President of Islamic Republic, made the same claim with a bunch of lies! He said, “there are currently only 12 red counties in the country.” Hassan Rouhani continued, “We didn’t hide the arrival of COVID-19 in the country, and as soon as we knew, we announced it. Nobody denied seriousness of COVID-19!”
According to reports from Government’s official news agency, the first death from COVID-19 was on February 12, at least a week before the official announcement of 2 confirmed deaths in Qom! On March 28, Ministry of Health Spokesman at the time, admitted the first case entered the country in January, a month before the official announcement!
Deputy Health Minister Harirchi on the day of the announcement said, “quarantine is for pre-war era and ineffective!” The same quarantine and lockdown that the entire regime officials are so proud of these days, 10 months and after more than 42,000 deaths. Dr Minoo Mohraz and many other authorities kept saying COVID-19 is just like the flu and nothing serious. These were just a few of the lies the President of Islamic Republic lied in one breath!
The National Task Force reiterated other officials rhetoric that “Yalda Night” gatherings should be stopped! The Spokesman said there would be restrictions in place for the night of the celebration and cars would be fined if on the streets. Raisi also said the night time curfew continues to be in place in yellow and orange cities.
Sima Sadat Lari reported her daily manipulated data. According to the Ministry of Health’s fake data 8,201 people tested positive for the coronavirus in the past 24 hours while 221 died of COVID-19. She announced 12 red counties, 231 orange and 205 yellow across the country. Testing reaches 46,000 range, the highest in 10 months, one of the lowest in the world per capita.
Basic Reproduction Rate (R0) and graphs continue to be the best indicators of the ongoing human catastrophe in Iran. Recoveries reaches the all time high of 13,000 in a day, which could only mean the regime in Iran has found a secret remedy to cure COVID-19!!
