An informed source from Iran’s Ministry of Health on Monday sent a list of latest data on Iran’s Coronavirus victims to Avatoday, which shows sharp difference from that released by the government.
The statistic, which covers the record from 20 February to March 30, listed as follows:
Total number of confirmed cases: 95,606
Suspected cases: 137,927
Total death total: 16, 785
The number of people involved with the virus: 250,318
According to an image of the list, which Avatoday is unable to publish due to security reasons, Tehran with death toll of 1,341, Gilan with 1,275 and Qom with 1,206 are the top three provinces hit by the virus outbreak in Iran.
“Just today, March 30, 1,081 people died of Coronavrus, 7,000 people diagnosed with the and 10,000 people are suspected to be infected,” he said.
The source, who talked to Avatoday on condition of anonymity, said the Ministry is not allowed to release the real statistic as the state warned officials of any information leak regarding the new Coronavirus outbreak in Iran.
From March 20 until today, the source said, more than 500 health personnel including doctors, nurses and hospital stuff have been arrested for sending news on the epidemic to foreign media.
