Iran registers record 337 coronavirus deaths in single day

As many as 337 deaths have been registered in Iran on Monday from the novel coronavirus— a record high for a single day in the Middle Eastern country hardest hit by the global pandemic.

“Today we are facing a larger wave of this virus and we have to fight it,” Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised meeting with health experts.

He directed the health ministry to increase the number of daily coronavirus tests, to help reduce the highly transmittable infection.

So far, the country has reported 30,712 total number of fatalities since the first coronavirus case emerged in February.

Last Wednesday, Iran had recorded death toll for a day was 279.

The total number of infections in the country has surge to 534,631 on Monday, with 4,251 people testing positive in the past 24 hours.

Deaths and infections from the virus have been rising in Iran and recorded several new highs since early September.

“One of the key solutions is identifying the infected as quickly as possible, isolating them as quickly as possible, and thus to reduce the need for hospitalisations and also reduce mortality,” Rouhani said.

“It s not a problem if infections go up (due to increased testing), but it is important that the death rate does not,” he added.
