“According to the Health Ministry’s Epidemiology Committee, the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths are extremely high across the country. In the five provinces of South Khorasan, Ardabil, Tehran, Golestan and Qazvin we are witnessing an increasing trend or a new peak,” according to a Sunday report wired by the semi-official ISNA news agency.

“We are seeing many cases of quarantine regulations violations and in some parts of Tehran there are reports of 73 percent of such breaches which are very concerning,” said Alireza Zali, head of the Tehran Covid-19 Task Force on Sunday. “Quarantine regulations in red cities are the equivalent of lockdown measures but these are not lockdown restrictions. These latest measures are not fully implemented. The most effective strategy is a full restrictive lockdown. A minimum two-week lockdown can have a lasting impact,” he added, according to the regime’s official IRNA news agency.
