  • Iran's virus deaths exceed 33,000 with new records

The official added that the combined tally of patients who have survived the deadly infection has totaled 455,054, whereas a number of 4,969 patients are still being held under intensive medical care for their critical condition. The photo was taken on Friday from West Tehran. The health authorities report that hospitals are increasingly becoming occupied, and are running out of beds to treat new patients.

"Our doctors and nurses are exhausted. I urge everyone to respect the protocols", Alireza Zali said, reports Reuters. The country is now grappling with another wave of COVID-19, and is registering a coronavirus related death every four minutes. Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi last week said that the death count could go up to 600 a day owing to poor social distancing. That brings the country's total virus deaths to 33,299, the highest virus toll in the Mideast.

Schools, shops, restaurants, mosques and other institutions in the country have remained shut, with the restrictions earlier slated to end today.

Some experts have doubted the accuracy of Iran's official coronavirus tolls.

Officials said "extreme measures and limitations" would be imposed in at least 43 counties across the country for one week, where the infection rates had been alarming. TV reported that 21 one of Iran's 31 provinces were on a coronavirus red alert.

Chief of Staff of the Iranian armed forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri on Monday called the idea of holding talks with the USA "a non-starter", saying that Washington's proposal for the negotiations with Tehran was a tactic to force Iran to surrender to the US.

Health ministry spokeswoman says Iran had registered 346 new fatalities in the past 24 hours.

Washington, accusing Tehran of "incompetent and deadly governance", has refused to lift sanctions that were reimposed after 2018 when US President Donald Trump exited Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with six world powers.
