Health Minister: Inhumane sanctions created problems for supply of medicine, medical equipment for Iran

Tehran, IRNA – Minister of health, remedy and medical training said here on Saturday inhumane sanctions despite coronavirus pandemic was one of Iran’s major problems, which affected the medicine and medical facilities, as well.

In a meeting with the representatives of the international organizations in Iran, Bahram Einollahi asked their representatives: How could the organizations that care about the humanitarian issues encounter the inhumane sanctions against various countries, including Iran?

“Are the sanctions in line with the objectives of those international organizations? The sanctions are great injustice against Iran, but our nation has an great attitude, which enables them to resist against these sanctions, and they will do the same also from now on,” he added.

Einollahi said that up to the beginning of the summer season 5 million doses of vaccines were injected in Iran, but today we have reached 64 million doses, which is a success gained thanks to the contributions of the people and various organs and organizations, that can serve as a model for the countries whose vaccination has been delayed.

The health minister said that the goal is vaccinating at least 85% of our population, but of course a small portion of the people, like in many other countries, are scared of becoming vaccinated, but at any rate we wish to reach the 85% and the lowering of the disease casualties.

He said that the foreign countries’ citizens in Iran who have not received vaccines, too, are vaccinated at all vaccination centers throughout Iran, because we care about their health.
