WANA (DEC16) – On December 14, 2022, 354 people died in America due to Covid-19, while on the same date, the number of deaths in Iran due to the same disease shows zero.

This news can be interesting for many if they want to know how Iran managed this crisis to a large extent. A country that has been under the most severe sanctions for years. More interesting to know that for a long time, the death toll of Covid-19 in Iran is zero or single digits.


Many supporters of the West in Iran ridiculed the government for not managing the issue of the coronavirus in the country. In those days, when the death toll of Covid-19 in Iran was high, the headlines of many media were that the government in Iran was killing Iranians with mismanagement.

Perhaps few people seriously asked this question why are the Western rulers playing with the lives of millions of people in another country in a humanitarian issue? Why did America and the Western countries not even agree to provide health aid to Iran or to ease the sanctions a little so that fewer lives are lost? They didn’t even come to help Hassan Rouhani’s government, which was the softest towards the West during his presidency, to eliminate this problem.


The highest number of Covid-19 deaths is related to the last year of Hassan Rouhani’s presidency. He failed to manage the Covid crisis properly. Even his foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, who was supposed to solve the problems of the people in this area due to his familiarity with the political language of other countries, could not do anything.



No Western government could seriously intervene in this matter and help Iran. Rouhani’s government has also shown that it is not a government for crisis situations.


The foes of Iran hoped that the escalation of the crisis related to the Coronavirus would cause people’s discontent and finally revolt and overthrow the Islamic government in Iran. It doesn’t matter if some Western and Hebrew, and Arab politicians are against this finding or reject it; the important thing is that this was precisely the desired event they were waiting for.


One of the first actions of Ebrahim Raisi after becoming the president was to import Covid-19 Vaccine and speed up the production of domestic anti-coronavirus vaccines. The widespread injection of the vaccine, in addition to the Iranians’ squire in this matter, caused the number of people infected with Corona and the number of deaths to decrease drastically.



The Western media, which until the last 6-7 months were talking daily about the bitter news of the coronavirus in Iran, have been silent for months now.


The policy of the media in recent months in the world is not to show Iran’s success in controlling the Corona crisis. They prefer to censor the high number of infected and daily deaths of Covid-19  in some countries.


We review this news once again: On December 14, 2022, 354 people died in America due to Covid-19, while on the same date, the number of deaths in Iran due to the same disease shows zero.
