Officially, Iran claims 34 dead from coronavirus, but sources in the country's health system reported other data, BBC reports.
Journalists have information about the death of at least 210 people in Iran from a coronavirus, which is six times the official statistics of the Iranian government.
At the same time, the representative of the presidium of the Iranian legislative body, Asadullah Abbashi, informed Iribnews about the infection of a group of MPs.
According to him, tests for coronavirus showed a positive result among several parliamentarians, but some of them should be re-tested. Therefore, the Iranian Ministry of Healthcare did not name the exact number of infected MPs.
Muhammad Ali Wakil, a member of the Iranian parliament’s presidium, specified that 30 parliamentarians had passed medical tests, and four were diagnosed with coronavirus.
According to Abbasi, due to the spread of coronavirus in the country, the presidium decided to suspend parliamentary meetings until further notice.
As we reported, 774 cases of infection with coronavirus Covid-19 spotted in 20 countries in the territory of Europe.
