Speaking in her daily briefing on Thursday, Iran's Health Ministry Spokesperson Sima Lari added that the pandemic has claimed 256 lives in 24 hours while the total death toll stands at 29,605.

On Wednesday it reported record daily figures of 279 deaths and 4,830 new coronavirus infections.

US officials said in October 2019 that the United States had carried out a cyber attack on Iran after drone strikes on Saudi oil facilities, which Washington and Riyadh blamed on Tehran.

The latest deaths raised the overall toll to 30,123 for the eight months since Iran reported its first fatalities from the novel coronavirus.

After downplaying the outbreak in its first weeks, Iranian officials have more recently begun to admit the scope of the epidemic within the country.

Lari added that there are 4,721 virus patients that are in critical condition. Officials promised those who tested positive would be closely tracked. Then the government swiftly reopened the country, desperate to boost its stricken economy. The fallout from the outbreak has hit the country as its economy is already crippled by sweeping USA sanctions.


Iran's Pink Crescent Society mentioned in a tweet on Tuesday that they had been answerable for importing two million flu vaccine doses into the nation, however that new US sanctions prevented the import. But actual numbers might be higher, doctors in Baghdad and Iraq's south said, as patients showing mild to moderate virus symptoms often stay at home and do not get tested for COVID-19.

The ministry mentioned one other 4 individuals died from the virus, pushing the general dying toll to 459. Overall recoveries are at 106,354.

Recorded infections have soared once more in current weeks, as authorities have relaxed restrictions and resumed faculties for in-person instruction.

Iran continues to break records in new COVID-19 deaths as the country struggles to contain the pandemic. Dubai, the region's business hub, recently reopened its airport for global travelers.

The UAE is engaged in an aggressive testing campaign, with over 11 million tests conducted in a country home to over 9 million people.

Iran is experiencing its third surge of coronavirus infections and says its fight against the coronavirus has been hampered by US sanctions, which have limited its crude oil sales and its access to foreign banks.
