Just like November 2019 when Rouhani threatened protesters to be identified and “dealt with”, Islamic Republic President removed the mask from the oppressive regime’s face and said the same for the people who don’t wear mask in public! He said, “We will identify them in Tehran from this week, and can’t be merciful!” There are serious doubts about whether they could do it or not, but regardless, many questions come to mind! Why have they waited more than 7 months, after thousands of deaths and millions of lives negatively impacted to implement this “plan”? What are they going to do with those people, because as it’s universally known, Islamic Republic doesn’t have the fairest justice system in the world!? And if it’s not possible, why would he even say that? Just to scare the already broken poor Iranians into following the “rules”?!
Hassan Rouhani, once again, blamed everything on people, saying only 53% of people follow protocols! First of all, this is in direct contrast with what Ministry of Health officials have repeatedly said, that people’s cooperation “has decreased to above 70%.” Secondly, he was the one thanking people for following “protocols” during Muharram gatherings with more than 90% cooperation! After Muharram, the very same gatherings every expert in the country warned against them, the numbers quite predictably rose through the roof, all of a sudden people are to blame?!
Head of National Corona Combating Task Force also regurgitated the same lie Islamic Republic has been telling people for more than 4 decades, “Blame the White House in Washington for your problems,” wondering what White House had to do with Muharram gatherings or reopening schools, that even officials have admitted were big mistakes causing the third wave in the country! Reopening schools have caused many students to contract the virus and spread it to their families, a few have become critical and a well-known teacher in Khuzestan passed away.
According to head of Tehran Corona Combating Committee, Dr. Zali, city of Tehran is in “beyond dreadful” situation and restrictions must be imposed immediately! However, Rouhani in the National Task Force meeting today has made a “big decision”. The provincial officials have the authority to impose restrictions IF they send the request to the National Task Force and it’s approved. So what has changed from the past is unknown. Nahid Khodakarami, a member of Tehran City Council, announced another number that should make everybody think twice before relying on the Ministry of Health’s stats. She said 12,000 have died of COVID-19 in the city of Tehran alone, so far. That means between August 23 and September 25, 1,800 passed on in Tehran, an average of 60 people per day in 1 city! She’s also said, “the number of daily deaths has reached 90 in some days.” She confirmed our reports about full hospitals, both private and public, as well.
Despite all that, Sima Sadat Lari shamelessly goes in front of cameras every day to announce her manipulated and fake “daily stats”! She reported 3,204 new COVID-19 cases and 172 deaths in the past 24 hours. The same 29 provinces in critical condition, despite Harirchi saying the entire country is critical! Even based on their own undercounted numbers, active cases keep on rising when critical cases are nearing the total number of ICU beds in the country.
Basic Reproduction Rate (R0) and graphs indicate worse days are yet to come and all Islamic Republic knows is to stand and watch when more Iranians lose their lives and livelihood, blaming people and US! The theocratic regime has done nothing wrong!!
