The Iranian authorities have increased the balance of people affected by the coronavirus pandemic to more than 350,000 infected and 20,000 deaths. This comes from a balance released Wednesday by the Iranian Ministry of Health, which includes around 302,000 discharged patients.
At least 2,444 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, bringing the preliminary number of infections to 350,279. According to the official IRNA news agency, 153 people have died since Tuesday, a total of 20,125 since the pandemic began.
