Iran’s Health Ministry announced in a statement that daily COVID-19 deaths and infections reached 238 and 14,607, respectively, from Sunday to Monday.

It said the total COVID-19 death toll and infections since the beginning of the outbreak in the country in late February 2020 stand at 121,367 and 5,638,735, respectively.

According to the ministry, 5,727 COVID-19 patients are in critical condition, and of the newly-detected cases, 2,163 patients have been hospitalized.

It added that 5,115,796 COVID-19 patients have so far either recovered from the disease or have been discharged from hospitals.

According to the statement, 32,619,228 coronavirus diagnostic tests have so far been carried out in the country.

It added that 58,759,840 doses of COVID-19 vaccines have so far been administrated across Iran.

The ministry said 16 cities in the country are coded red (very high-risk), while 198 are in the orange zone (high-risk).

The number of the country’s yellow (medium-risk) and blue (low-risk) cities are 176 and 58, respectively, according to the ministry.

Iran has been grappling with a fifth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic since a few ‎weeks ago, mainly sparked by the spread of the Indian coronavirus variant, known ‎as Delta, seeing a resurgence in deaths and infections. The number of casualties, however, has been declining since a few days ago, indicating that the country is past the peak of the fifth wave’s infections and deaths.
