The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran
(PMOI/MEK) announced on Sunday, May 3, that the Coronavirus death toll in 310 cities in Iran had exceeded 38,700. Hassan Rouhani, who, despite the requests by Tehran’s city council, still refuses to announce the fatality figures for each Province separately, again made the absurd claim, “Most hospital beds … are empty. Our country’s statistics (on Coronavirus fatalities) show our success has been significant compared to other countries … The conditions of those contracted the virus, those hospitalized, recovered, and those who’ve lost their lives is as desired.”
On the other hand Health Minister Saeed Namaki told Khamenei’s website, “Some think that we have many hospital beds. The ratio of hospital beds for every 1000 people is 1.6. The most underdeveloped European countries have five times more beds than we have. The number of nurses compared to beds in worst cases in Europe and the US is two to three times more than ours
In Babol, Dr. Alireza Jalali, head of the Medical Sciences University, told Khabar-e Dagh (Hot News), that “Coronavirus has taken on a new life in the city, and the number of hospitalized patients has increased. So far, 109 patients are in the ICU.” In Birjand, Dr. Kambiz Mehdi-zadeh, deputy head of the Medical School in South Khorasan Province, told Mehr News Agency on April 28, “We have witnessed an upward trend in the number of infected patients in the Province. These days, we see two-digit infections daily.” According to physicians in Tehran, in just four hospitals out of 138 public and private hospitals that receive Coronavirus patients, 1,400 have died so far. The number of fatalities in Yaft-Abad, Khomeini, Sina, and Alam hospitals is at least 750, 450,120, and 80 people, respectively.
