According to spokesperson of the Health Ministry Sima Sadat Lari, during the said period, another 2,634 cases of infection with COVID-19 virus were found in the country and 1,304 of them have been hospitalized, IRNA reported.
Lari added that a total of 320,117 Iranians have so far been confirmed infected with the COVID-19virus while 277,463 of them were declared recovered and discharged from hospital.
She noted another 4,156 other COVID-19 patients are in critical condition and under treatment in intensive care units.
Lari said that 2,612,763 tests have so far been carried out in Iran.
Iran, the worst-hit country from the coronavirus in West Asia, has been battling a resurgence of the virus, with official figures showing a rise in both new infections and deaths since a two-month low in May.
This has prompted Iran to make wearing masks mandatory in enclosed spaces and reimpose restrictions lifted gradually since April to reopen the country’s sanctions-hit economy.
