Iran: 111 Medical Staff Have Died of Coronavirus So Far, Regime Lays Off Nurses

Simultaneous with the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Iranian regime conceals the real figure of those infected and dead, lays off nurses, and resumes economic activities, which paves the way for a greater death toll

In tandem with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the world, governments make their best to reduce the magnitude of damages.

In this context, many governments have passed urgency laws for empowering health departments. Doctors, nurses, and healthcare workers are the hero for this operation and regrettably, a significant number of these selfless people lost their lives.

“Commemorating the selfless physicians and nurses, and other victims of the #Coronavirus catastrophe in #Iran #IransAngels,” Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) tweeted on April 3.

Recently, a nurse reported that in Iran the mullahs’ regime has fired many nurses from Tehran’s hospital. As a basic right, the nurses and medical staff should have job security, particularly in the current circumstances. However, the fundamentalist regime which was previously transferred the dangerous virus to the country and helped to spread it by non-quarantining its epicenter, Qom, now is weakening the country’s ability to containing the viral disease by firing selfless nurses.

“In Tehran, Milad hospital’s officials have informed nurses that the hospital pays salaries for every day they work. In reality, officials have turned them into daily workers,” the source also said.

This matter is taking place while the regime insists on resuming financial activities, which put the lives and health of many people at risk of the coronavirus contagion. Regarding the mullahs’ non-transparency over the real statistics of the mortalities of the viral disease, this decision would lead the society to an even greater health disaster.

On April 13, a member of the Tehran City Council Mohammad Haghshenas admitted that the Iranian regime does not announce "real figures." He addressed the head of the council Mohsen Hashemi and said, “At least in Tehran city, the scale of the death toll is completely inconsistent with official figures.”

According to the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK), at least 28,000 Iranian citizens have lost their lives of the COVID-19. The PMOI/MEK has collected its tally by using its vast domestic network that extends into hundreds of cities across the country’s 31 provinces.

Notably, the Iranian regime has yet to provide appropriate hygienic equipment for these novel citizens despite the huge wealth of subsidiaries of the supreme leader Ali Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guard (IRGC). In this context, Khamenei controls a 100-billion-dollar business in addition to preserving $200 billion in different financial institutions and holding like the Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO), Astan-e Quds Razavi, Mostazafan Foundation, etc.

The IRGC commanders have also lined their pockets with billions of dollars of the national asset through the so-called construction headquarters of Khatam al-Anbiya. Several months ago, a former official Behzad Nabavi confirmed that more than 60 percent of the national wealth has collected in these four institutions.

“Food and medicine have never sanctioned,” according to the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Abbas Mousavi. However, the mullahs’ regime has taken hostage the people’s lives and health to either loosen or lift U.S. sanctions against its malign behavior, terrorist activities, and human rights violations.

This criminal policy resulted in the death of more than 100 medical staff so far. The names of 111 of them are as follow:

“In remarks reported on Saturday, January 5, 2019, Mohammad Sharifi Moghaddam, deputy director of the National Nursing Organization, revealed parts of the drastic situation of nurses in Iran and their difficult job. He said, ‘The problems of nurses in Iran must be examined and mismanagements in this field must be rectified,’”  the NCRI women committee reported on January 7, 2019.

Also, On October 2, 2019, the Iran Focus website reported, “At least 4,000 Iranian nurses leave their jobs every year, some due to retirement or disability, but plenty are resigning due to the intense pressures in this woefully understaffed job.”

On December 31, on the eve of Iranian Nursing Day, the head of the Nursing Organization Mohammed Mirzabigi declared, "the arrears of some nurses have not been paid for 22 months."

Notably, the Iranian health and medical community have a shortage of about 100,000 nursing staff, and according to the Parliamentary Health Commission spokesman, the country's nurses are forced to perform "150 hours of overtime." However, the living conditions of nurses are deplorable.
