Over 227,300 people have died of Covid-19 in 501 cities across Iran, according to reports tallied daily by the Iranian opposition, People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) as of Thursday March 7. 


Latest reports indicate that Kachouii Prison authorities have refused to grant medical leave to political prisoner Monireh Arabshahi who is suffering from thyroid malfunction and needs to be operated. In mid-December, when Mrs. Arabshahi had a swollen throat and had difficulty breathing, doctors said that she needed to be urgently tested. But Kachouii Prison authorities have prevented her from having a thyroid gland scan and other tests which would prove whether she needs to undergo surgery. Most recently, the Forensics Medicine Office verified that Monireh Arabshahi cannot endure prison conditions and that she should be granted medical leave. Monireh Arabshahi and her daughter, Yasaman Aryani, are imprisoned for opposing the mandatory veil. They are serving their sentence of 5 years and six months.
