Iran’s Health Ministry reported 112 casualties from COVID-19 in 24 hours – the lowest daily death toll in nearly five months.
According to the ministry’s figures, this is the lowest death toll Iran has registered since June 19, when it was 108.
The ministry put the total death toll from COVID-19 in Iran at 127,551, according to IRNA.
It also reported 8,305 new positive cases across the country, bringing the total number of new cases to 6,004,460.
The government has launched a vaccination program in the country in a bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus. The vaccination drive is the main factor that has helped the government lower the number of casualties and new cases.
