Iran reports highest one-day COVID-19 deaths since outbreak

Unfortunately, Iran has reported highest one-day COVID-19 deaths since outbreak began. Iran has recorded its highest single-day jump in Coronavirus Covid-19 deaths to date. 200 people have died. The health minister has blamed the rise on Iranians not following important restrictions.

Iran has reported a total of more than 13,000 Coronavirus COVID-19 deaths, with more than 262,000 cases. Just last week, Iran started to reimpose some important restrictions after a surge in new cases.

It's important to stay 6 feet apart and wear a mask (as much as you can) everywhere you go. It's certainly a good idea to stay home as much as you can.

  1. Kudos to you for keeping up to date with the happenings of COVID-19 around the world, including Iran. The Iranian Health Minister had been infected earlier this year, too.

    1. Thanks for reading about Iran and Coronavirus Covid-19. Unfortunately, Iran could have even more infections in the future.

      Here is another interesting news article:

      Iran could have 25 million cases of coronavirus: Rouhani

      July 18, 2020 - Iran’s president Saturday estimated as many as 25 million Iranians could have been infected with the coronavirus since the outbreak’s beginning, and urged the public to take the pandemic seriously, the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

      President Hassan Rouhani cited a new Iranian Health Ministry study in offering the unprecedentedly high number of infections. Officials have not explained what the report’s estimates are based on and the study has not been made public. Rouhani also said he believes an additional 30-35 million people could be infected in coming months, again without citing the basis for his estimate. Iran’s population is approximately around 81 million people.

      Iran has seen the worst outbreak in the Middle East. Iran has had more than 270,000 confirmed cases and more than 14,000 deaths.
