Number of Covid deaths, infections declining in Iran

First weekly Covid-19 update in Iran shows a downward trend on several key indicators, including hospitalizations and deaths.

Iranian health ministry figures on Saturday showed that 120 people died from the disease in the past 24 hours compared to 134 fatalities the day before.

The deaths push the total fatalities from the disease to 138,831 since the start of the pandemic.

The daily caseload from Friday to Saturday stood at 2,219 including 543 hospitalizations. With the Covid deaths and infections on the decline, Iran has not eased its nationwide vaccination campaign.
