The People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) announced on Thursday, January 21, 2021, that the Coronavirus death toll in 478 cities had exceeded 204,600. The number of victims in Tehran is 49,756, Isfahan 12,915, Lorestan 8,278, Mazandaran 8,157, Qom 7,950, Golestan 5,150, Hamedan 4,818, Kerman 4,524, Kermanshah 4,244, North Khorasan 3,148, Semnan 3,035, Zanjan 2,175, Qazvin 2,162, Ilam 2,116, Bushehr 2,059, and South Khorasan 1,941.

Despite concerns regarding the surge in the Coronavirus outbreak, due to Khamenei and Rouhani’s criminal policies, there are no clear prospects for vaccination. Mostafa Ghanei, director of the NCCT Scientific Committee, told the State TV yesterday, “By the end of June 2021, we will have access to the Iranian vaccine for injection, and I think, God willing, there will be no shortage of vaccines in September, and we can say that by the end of the year (another 14 months) vaccination will reach the point where we can break the virus chain.”
