Tehran (IP) - The Minister of Health, Treatment and Medical Education said that on November 21, we had 160 red cities, 208 orange cities, and 80 yellow cities with coronary status.

Iran Press/Iran news: Saeed Namaki, in a live TV program about the fourth step of the national mobilization to manage and control the Covid-19 pandemic in a district and family-oriented manner, called the Martyr Soleimani project, added: These red spots decreased on December 1 and much less on December 10.

"On December 1, we had 64 red cities, 279 orange cities, and 105 yellow cities. On December 10, we reached 34 red cities, 260 orange cities, and 154 cities with yellow corona status," he added.

He said: "We appreciate those who cooperate in establishing this district-based project. The recommendation is to increase the level of cooperation and participation and to complement the real health ambassadors in this course. We had great achievements, and if we go back in time and look at the number of deaths of nearly 500 people a day, it was embarrassing for us. Even the death of a citizen is sad for us everywhere in the world. Today we even saw more than 290 families grieving.

The Minister of Health stated: "The first achievement of this plan is to reduce the number of hospital admissions, and on average, about 30% of the beds used to provide services to corona patients are less than before, and this is an opportunity for our colleagues in hospitals to take a rest."

He noted: "With the efforts of healthcare staff, laboratory sciences, and the health system, the number of corona tests will increase to a minimum of 70,000 per day and a maximum of 100,000 and 120,000 in the coming days."

Namaki added: "We will experience more diagnostics and less critically ill patients will go to hospitals due to early diagnosis. Today, according to international estimates, we should have experienced the death of more than 1,100 people a day.

The Minister of Health stated: "Our biggest anxiety right now is the discussion of normalization. We have no phenomenon more effective than distancing and following health protocols to control the disease and get rid of the clutches of death caused by Covid- 19.

Namaki said: Most Turkmen-settled villages in Golestan and Mazandaran villages, especially in the highlands, are affected by the disease. In Gilan, unfortunately, new troubles have been created for us, and the air of the green chain in the north of the country has unfortunately been polluted by Covid- 19.
