Speaking at a videoconference with the IRGC commanders on Tuesday, Major General Salami said the IRGC feels duty bound to carry out the order issued by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei for assisting the health sector in tackling the pandemic.

All of the IRGC’s capacities and facilities have been placed at the Iranian medical sector’s disposal, including the hospitals, mask production plants, forces participating in screening schemes, and the society of doctors and nurses, he added.

This seems like a petty attitude, given that the virus is not affecting Trump, Biden, or any of the other ruling elites, whether handpicked or not, who always have access to classified healthcare that the peons, the ninety-nine percent, are deprived of. And I don’t in the least trust these elites and their cognoscenti, their flatterers in the media and academia, to tell the slightest truth about what is really happening, what is really taking place, and what is really planned. They all fake their infections to garner sympathy from the sheep, the herd, the slaves, the gullible. If you believe the official 9/11 narrative, then you’ll fall for actors.

So far the vast majority of COVID-19 sufferers in the US, as elsewhere, are the elderly, the impoverished, and the minorities—certainly not the hidden hands behind the Western, Zionist Imperium. This virus is ravishing—and ravaging—the most vulnerable people, above all the masses in the sanctioned and ravaged lands, while the elites are giddily leaving the room, about the turn off the lights, in these final moments before World War III. The elites who truly deserve to suffer from this virus aren’t suffering in the least. Not one bit. You are referring to USA Incorporated, which is an entity, not a person.

COVID-19 infections continue to rise in Gaza

Quote

Hospitals in Gaza currently have less than one hundred ICU beds and ventilators for nearly two million inhabitants. The coronavirus has complicated the already dire humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. The Israeli blockade in place since 2007 has caused a sharp decline in the standards of living as well as high levels of unemployment and poverty.

Experts say the Israeli blockade must be fully lifted to help avert a humanitarian disaster Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are desperately combating an unprecedented Coronavirus outbreak within the general population under the watchful eye of the international community.

Nano-mask with 99.9% lethality to Covid-19 created by Iranian researchers

Quote

According to ISNA, Abuzar Masoudi, who’s a faculty member of the Materials and Energy Research Institute, has stated that since the fibers of the fabric are hydrophilic. Therefore, the behavior of the virus is different, so different masks have been offered, including the FFP1 mask, which prevents up to 95 percent of the virus and up to 80 percent of the bacteria. While the N95 mask resists the virus up to 95 percent, and up to 100 percent of the bacteria.

This is while sponge and cloth masks prevent up to 50 percent of bacteria from entering the body, and are not able to fight the virus.

According to Masoudi, this project is planned to enter the industrial production phase.

Health Minister Saeed Namaki said on Tuesday that Iran will start testing its homegrown coronavirus vaccine on humans in early November.

If the disease and the vaccine do not undergo fundamental changes and transformations, we have developed good methods for making the vaccine and informed the World Health Organization about this, he stated.

Mehdi Kashmiri, director for technology and planning at the science ministry, said in July that about 450 knowledge-based companies were active in the country for manufacturing protective equipment and treatment products to fight the coronavirus.

Production of more than one million face masks per day, production of more than 1.5 liters of disinfectants per day, diagnostic kits, non-contact thermometers, protective clothing, ventilator are among the produces manufactured by these companies, he added.

Iranian-made innovative products in the field of diagnosis, screening, and fighting coronavirus were also unveiled to combat the disease, namely, ozone generator, nanotechnology face shields, disinfection gate, and molecular COVID-19 diagnostic kits.

Saudi Arabia ready to host foreign Umrah pilgrims

Quote

Speaking to state TV on Tuesday night, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah Abdulrahman Shams said organizing the Umrah with pilgrims from inside the kingdom has been successful and now the country is ready to welcome those from other countries who wish to perform the pilgrimage, al-Quds website reported.

He noted that the Eatmarna Umrah app is for Saudis and those residing in the Arab country, adding that foreigners who want to perform Umrah need to register via pilgrimage service companies.

They can enter Saudi Arabia in batches and individual pilgrims will not be allowed into travel to the kingdom, the official added.

Shams also said no coronavirus cases have been reported among Umrah pilgrims.

Earlier this week, another Saudi official said that more than 125,000 people had performed Umrah in the first phase of its return, confirming that no infections had been recorded among pilgrims so far.

“The first phase was completed successfully by last Saturday, where we received more than 125,000 pilgrims. The first phase only focused on Umrah, no prayers,” said Amr Al-Maddah, undersecretary at the Ministry for Hajj and Umrah, adding that the Eatmarna app had been downloaded more than 2.5 million times so far.

He also said the Grand Mosque had received 40,000 worshippers and 15,000 pilgrims in the second phase of Umrah.

Imam Khamenei urges new moves to contain COVID19

Quote

Imam Khamenei stated that the reason for this meeting, which was being held at the invitation of the President, was the regrettable situation of COVID-19 in the country, the necessity for increased efforts and the need to adopt new measures to combat this virus. He added, “Of course, the essence of this matter and its autumn peak is something that is plaguing the whole world, not just Iran.”

He stated that correct, proper management lies in decisive decisions being made by the government, convincing the public opinion, and cooperation between all sectors as well as the cooperation of the people. He added, “Of course, such cooperation is not particular to Corona, rather it should be witnessed in all matters, particularly political matters. Because a country that has a strong nation, a new system and new ideas will naturally face important issues both on an international and a domestic level.”...................................................


His Eminence also stated, “However, our way is based on Islam and the Qur’an. In other words, one can criticize, but one should not denigrate others in doing so.”

After making this important point, His Eminence returned to the subject of Corona and stated that the decisions made regarding Corona and the people’s health, security and livelihood may not be completely compatible with one another. He emphasized, “Since the security and economic aspects of this issue originate from the disease itself, the priority and basis in decision-making is the people’s health.”

Expressing his gratitude to the National Committee on Combating COVID-19 and the organizations affiliated with it, he described the performance of the health and medical professionals of the country as being extremely brilliant and Jihad in the way of God. He also made some recommendations...................................................

“Raising public awareness about how the disease spreads and ways of prevention using local resources such as mosques and the Basij, giving a central role to the Ministry of Health and asking for the cooperation of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance and the IRIB” and “the necessity of designating strict punishments for those who violate the health protocols” were other recommendations made by the Supreme Leader to the officials of the National Committee on Combating COVID-19.

Pointing to the fact that some people may face a worsening of their economic situation with the imposition of such regulations, Imam Khamenei said, “The administration must introduce some support measures. In addition, charities and people should also take action and help the needy, because this is one of the best deeds and one of the best ways for getting close to God.”

@Ashvazdanghe Bro, look at what little upside there is in the numbers:

The 117 per million, which is low compared to other countries and, l believe, lRl is still under medical boycott.

Years ago, l read that lran had a surplus of ten thousand doctors. Which can form the basis of a lot of research.

Also, lMH0, l thought earlier today that this C-l9 disaster is like a "dressed rehearsal" for something more severe.

@hasanhh salam anyway it's a sad number also I & rest of Iranians are feeling sadness for increasing number of patients in America & rest of world except Israel , anyway as you said Iran is " still under medical boycott." also we suffer from poor management of some officials like America but because of sacrifice of medical staffs & helps of IRGC & Basij & rest of religious NGO groups from local mosques we can overcome many difficulties.

Yes.

This is the high daily assessment. John Hopkins is the low.(l only looked at their numbers once or twice, so l forget their display.)

As you likely saw on this past weeks news, the statistical "unexpected deaths" indicates that the US has had 300k deaths rather than the 200k reported by John Hopkins.

l explained the difference between John Hopkins and Worldometers somewhere above a little more completely.
