Iran’s death toll from the new coronavirus has reached 853, with 129 new deaths in the past 24 hours, according to the Health Ministry.

“In the past 24 hours we had 1,053 confirmed new cases of coronavirus and 129 new deaths,” Alireza Vahabzadeh, a ministry official, tweeted on Monday. A total of 14,991 people have been infected across Iran, the official added.

To contain the outbreak in Iran, one of the deadliest outside of China, officials have called on people to stay at home.

“Based on the figures, we have passed the peak of the outbreak, but I still suggest people stay at home, and in case of urgency, observe all health protocols,” state TV quoted President Hassan Rouhani as saying.

Ouch, 7% of fatalities, it’s very very bad.It’s likely we will take serious containment measures here, in order to cut the spread as number of cases seem to double every day.
The only thing that might be positive in it is that the insane religious fanatics that are leading the country for 41 years are pretty old while, at least here, all fatalities were between 63 and 93 years old… Maybe COVID-19 may end making Iranians free again if people infected manage to contaminate the dictatorship.
