Iran Coronavirus March 6, 2022 – A Minister Lies, Another Orders Propaganda

Islamic Republic Health Minister lies about COVID-19 vaccination in Iran, comparing it to the US. Another Minister orders regime media to "create propaganda materials!”

Islamic Republic Health Minister, in an elaborate lie, claimed more Iranians have received 1st dose of COVID-19 vaccines compared to Americans due to his efforts and people’s cooperation! Eynollahi said, “more than 92% of people in Iran have received 1st dose while only 60% of Americans have!” A simple comparison proves his lies.

According to official data, 76% of US population have received at least their 1st dose while that number is 74% for Iranians. He also revealed that Noora vaccine, “developed” by IRGC, will be distributed in the country soon. He wrongfully asserted people of Iran have cooperated to get their shots, while authorities have been criticizing low vaccination rate. Deputy Head of Ahvaz Medical University admitted 15% of Khuzestan population who are eligible for vaccination have not received any.

Meanwhile, another minister of the regime, Minister of Islamic Culture and Guidance demanded media to “create propaganda materials about COVID-19 situation in Iran!” Since the virus was officially announced in Iran in February 2020, Islamic Republic has used its propaganda network to control the flow of information, stifled the truth, arrested citizen reporters and promoted its religious gatherings.

According to official definition of “full vaccination” and Ministry of Health data, since February 9, only 23,981,558 (28.54% 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.

The Islamic Republic “Supreme Leader” banned the reliable US and UK made vaccines, leading to tsunami of deaths during Delta wave. Khamenei promoted his foundation’s shot, COVIran Barekat, which failed miserably. 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 201 have died of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours and 5,586 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 324,000 have died of the disease since February 2020.
