COVID-19: Iran Death Toll Rises To 145



The death toll of coronavirus in Iran has risen to 145 after 21 new deaths were recorded in the country.

The health minister spokesman, Kianoush Jahanpour announced this on Saturday in a news conference stating that a total of 1,076 fresh cases were discovered, bringing infected cases to 5,823.

Jahanpour said more than 16,000 people are currently hospitalised as suspect cases while 1,669 of confirmed cases have recovered from the illness.

The Islamic republic capital, Tehran remains the worst-hit province in the country, with 1,539 confirmed cases, while situation in the northern provinces worsens.

Mazandaran province, a top tourist destination north of Tehran records more than 300 of the new cases

Jahanpour said “Mazandaran is at the top of the list because the necessary limitations (on domestic travelling) were not imposed.

“Considering that a minority are not taking the situation seriously and risk their own and others’ health, imposing limitations is now on the agenda.”
