Iran’s deaths at least 210, hospital sources say

According to the sources in Iran’s health system, at least 210 people in the country have died as a result of the new coronavirus disease. Most of the victims are from the capital, Tehran, and the city of Qom, where cases of Covid-19 first emerged. The figure is six times higher than the official death toll of 34 given by the health ministry earlier on Friday. Ministry spokesman Kianoush Jahanpour insisted it was being transparent. It comes after a member of parliament for Qom accused the authorities of a cover-up and the US expressed concern that the Iranian government may not be sharing information.
