According to Azizullah Shahbazi, the governor of Alborz, the number of coronavirus victims in the province has exceeded 1,700, so the authorities have decided to work with a capacity of 50 percent.
Earlier, Mehrdad Babayi, the director of the Alborz province’s health department, spoke of the need to make the same decisions, as the province is a neighbor of Tehran.
On Sunday, Mohammad Fathi said 16 more people had died of the coronavirus in the province, bringing the death toll to more than 1,700.
However, these figures are only official statistics, and officials from the Ministry of Health say that the actual statistics are at least twice as high. Iran is completely helpless in the face of the Coronavirus, and the growing number of deaths is a sign of a complete human tragedy.
