More than 10,000 health care workers in Iran infected with coronavirus, official says - Al Monitor
Some 10,000 health care workers in Iran have been infected with the coronavirus, Iranian news agencies reported Thursday.
The semi-official ISNA news outlet quoted Deputy Health Minister Qassem Janbabaei who confirmed the estimate. The Health Ministry had previously acknowledged more than 100 health care workers had died from the virus.
“It is also an honor to live in a country where the educated medical community and medical staff are doing what our young people did at the beginning of the revolution,” Janbabaei said.
