On Tuesday, Iranian authorities reported 229 deaths. This is the highest single-day death toll since the beginning of the pandemic.

Sima Sadat Lari, the Health Ministry spokesman, said that over the past 24 hours, there were 2,625 new cases.

The high death toll is worrying health officials and also the general public, as the hospitals are already overwhelmed.

In June, Iran managed to control the virus, allowing for shops and businesses to reopen, but cases and deaths started to increase in July.

Last week, a controversial report by the Iranian’s Health Ministry claimed that around 25 million people in the country have already been infected in the past 5 months.

Iran’s total number of cases since the pandemic began is now 278,827 cases and 14,634 deaths.
