Dozens of Iranian Doctors Died During Iran’s Coronavirus Crisis

Iran-HRM – As Iran’s coronavirus death toll rose to 14,200 over the weekend, 78 healthcare workers were confirmed to have died in Iran’s coronavirus crisis.

Dozens of Iranian Doctors Died During Iran's Coronavirus Crisis

The deaths of the Iranian healthcare workers from Covid-19 have shed light on severe lack of necessary medical items and standard protective gear in under equipped hospitals across the country.
Even before the coronavirus outbreak, Iran stood way below the international standards with a severe shortage of physicians, nurses, and medical staff. So, as the outbreak is sweeping across the country, Iran’s doctors and nurses as well as the other medical staff are going through extraordinary pressure.
According to the head of the Industry and Mine Organization in Kerman, 41% of those infected with COVID-19 in the southeastern province are healthcare workers. Mehdi Hosseini Nejad said that the reason behind the high infection rate was a problem in “providing masks, alcohol and gloves” for healthcare workers in Iran’s COVID-19 outbreak.
Healthcare workers in Gilan, northern Iran, which has one of the highest COVID-19 fatality rates in the country, also face a severe shortage of protective gear and equipment.
On March 7, a member of the board of directors of the Mashhad Nursing Organization said that nurses in several hospitals did not have adequate protective gear.
“Nurses in some hospitals are faced with a lack of protective gear including medical gowns, N95 masks, gloves and disinfectants,” Javad Tavakoli told the state-run YJC website.
