Iran Coronavirus February 23, 2022 – Rising Deaths & “Good Steps!”

Islamic Republic "Vice President" brags about "good steps" in controlling COVID-19 in Iran while vaccination has slowed down and schools resume their activities.

In the past 10 days, on average, 803 tested positive for COVID-19 and 8 died every hour in Iran. Daily death toll has constantly increased in the past few days. Kermanshah reported 2-digit death toll and Gilan recorded rising number of cases. Deputy Head of Tehran Corona Combating Committee warned any gathering could worsen the sixth wave even more. Dr. Tavakoli said the capital is reaching the peak and urged vaccination of the pregnant women and children as fast as possible. He admitted Delta continues to cause disease in Tehran. He reported surging number of cases and deaths every day, with about 70 in the past 24 hours, 50-70 in the past week. Head of Shiraz Medical University called on everybody to refrain from any gathering.

Meanwhile, schools resumed their in-person classes even in red cities in Khuzestan and other provinces. The Islamic Republic “Vice President” who was the head of Khamenei’s foundation in charge of “developing” COVIran Barekat which failed miserably and was promoted by the “Supreme Leader”, bragged about “vast vaccination being a good step in controlling the COVID-19!” However, according to official definition of “full vaccination” and Ministry of Health data, since February 9, only 22,617,635 (26.92% of Iran population) are vaccinated against COVID-19 with these vaccines. It is estimated that more than 53 million Iranians are at risk of contracting Omicron. The majority of shots used in Iran are the ineffective Sinopharm and COVIran Barekat. WHO recommends 3 doses of Sinopharm to be effective against Delta but studies have found the vaccine ineffective against Omicron.

Multiple “homegrown” vaccines, including PastoCoVac, COVPars, Fakhra, Noora, Spikogen, never met the expectations and none of them has published their results or received recognition/approval from international health organizations.

The Ministry of Health Spokesperson claimed 227 have died of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours and 15,340 tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Number of daily tests performed in the country continue to decline despite experts advice to have a more active case finding. Professor of Epidemiology at Tehran University believes these numbers must be multiplied by 7 and Civil Registration Organization data show more than 323,000 have died of the disease since February 2020.
