Chairman of Tehran Corona Combating Committee reported 1,200 COVID-19 hospitalizations in Tehran hospitals and about 17,000 outpatients. Dr. Zali claimed the fifth wave seems to have calmed down and deaths have decreased by 6% from last week. However, according to the manipulated and undercounted data of Ministry of Health, 452 died of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours in Iran, an increase from yesterday’s 408. Civil Registration Organization statistics indicate more than 277,000 have died of the disease since February 2020. Professor Holakoui of Tehran University believes the official figures must be multiplied by 7.
The ongoing massacre across Iran have made people vocal about Islamic Republic’s incompetence, mismanagement, and playing with people’s lives for political gains, including Khamenei banning US and UK made vaccines, hiding the truth, not controlling the borders, poor, chaotic and slow vaccination, importing ineffective Sinopharm instead of reliable and approved vaccines, lying about “homegrown vaccines”, shortage of medicines and saline solutions, and the list continues.
Meanwhile, health experts warn the next wave could begin with Lambda and Mu variants in the next few weeks. Dr. Jamalian of Arak Medical University predicts there would definitely be at least one more wave soon. He also confirmed the air pollution is the new problem for elderly and people with respiratory issues in Arak. Kermanshah reported another “black day” with 20 COVID-19 deaths, and Eynollahi found today as the best time to travel there for promoting regime’s misinformation campaign.
The Ministry of Health claimed total of 39,214,734 shots have been administered in Iran since February 9 and only 13,075,631 (15.54% of population) have received both doses of the ineffective vaccines. The Spokesperson also announced 19,731 tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Graphs remain the best indicators of the five waves Iran has gone through in the past 19 months.
