Iran records highest daily coronavirus cases in months
DUBAI (UAE) – The number of the novel coronavirus infections in Iran has risen by 3,341 in the past 24 hours. This is the highest daily tally since early June, taking total cases to 425,481, the health ministry spokeswoman told state TV on Monday.
Sima Sadat Lari said 177 people had lost lives in the past day, pushing the official death toll to 24,478 in Iran.
Iran’s deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi said last week that coronavirus red alert was declared in the country with the increase in number of deaths and cases.
Iranian health officials have alerted that a third wave of the pandemic was likely, and the government has highlighted the rise in infections was because of the decline in people adhering to health protocols.
