Isn’t it questionable to the Iranian people what caused the coronavirus death toll in Iran to be 500 times that of Afghanistan? In Iraq, this year’s Muharram mourning ceremony, by Shiite Muslims, was held with about 10 million people and there were no health protocols at the ceremony. How is it that the pandemic crisis may not exist in the east and west of Iran, yet the disease crisis in Iran is changing more rapidly and terrifyingly.
What is the story and why has Iran been overwhelmed with the coronavirus and its health structure collapsed, but there is no news of coronavirus in these two neighboring countries despite non-compliance with health protocols?
U.S. troops in both Iraq and Afghanistan, after the coronavirus pandemic and the discovery, production, and supply of vaccines globally, were fully vaccinated with U.S. vaccines Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Moderna, and due to the coronavirus mutations in human populations and concerns about the health of U.S. soldiers and soldiers of other countries, U.S. vaccines were also sent to the people of these two countries, and the populations of Afghanistan and Iraq were simultaneously covered with the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
Following vaccinations in Iraq and Afghanistan, collective safety has now emerged, and people are aware of this. But in Iran, due to the regime’s rejection and after Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s Fatwa about the prohibition of the import of US and British vaccines and the precedence of treatment despite the coronavirus prevention, the situation is opposite and so far, few vaccinations have been carried out in Iran’s community.
So, there won’t be collective immunity, and, naturally, the virus is spreading and circulating in large numbers in the community. Another point that has simplified the mystery of the coronavirus in Afghanistan and Iraq is the increase in deprivation and poverty in Iran.
Since the appearance of the coronavirus in Iran, it has been shown that the virus is specific to the disadvantaged, the poor, and the working class of society, which is not a small number.
The working-class and low-income groups now make up the majority of Iranian society, and so far, these people have been squeezed under the wheels of this deadly virus, and with their families have already suffered many blows from the disease.
Currently, at least 60 million people in Iran, who are receiving subsidies, live below the poverty line, and the minimum and maximum cost of their livelihood basket has reached 9.5 million and 12 million tomans, respectively.
These people, because they are struggling with poverty, deprivation of livelihoods, the pressure of life, malnutrition, hunger, vitamin deficiency, underlying diseases, and low resistance of their immune system, give up to the virus which is rapidly spreading in the population and ultimately die.
