Minister of Health and Environment Hassan Al-Tamimi said: We have indicators confirming that entire families have been infected with the Coronavirus in villages and rural areas.
Al-Tamimi said, in a statement carried by the ministry from one of the Corona treatment centers, that: Most of the cases infected with Corona in hospitals are critical and severe, and they are currently in intensive care.
He warned of: Very stormy days, and said our medical personnel were exhausted and injuries were increasing due to the citizen’s stubbornness to the ministry’s directives on prevention.
Al-Tamimi noted: Fear of the collapse of the infrastructure in front of these numbers of injuries, and what was indicated by injuries in the last week was not recorded in Iraq even at the beginning of the pandemic, with citizens continuing to not adhere to preventive measures, which will lead to a great disaster.
