Iran registers 4,552 new COVID-19 cases, 522,387 in total”

Iran introduced Saturday that its dying toll from the coronavirus has handed the milestone of 30,000, in what has been the Mideast area's worst outbreak. These figures bring the total number of deaths to 29,349 and infections to more than 513,200, according to Tasnim. Many Iranians travel to Mashhad, some 900 kilometers (560 miles) northeast of Tehran, to visit the tomb of Imam Reza, Iran's holiest Shiite site.

The country recorded historic highs in daily deaths three times this week, including Wednesday, The Associated Press reported.

Iran has been battling the coronavirus since saying its first instances in February, with greater than 526,000 confirmed instances so far.

After downplaying the outbreak in its first weeks, Iranian officials have more recently begun to admit the scope of the epidemic within the country.

Daily virus cases have dipped some in Iraq, averaging around 3,000-4,000 per day from a late summer peak of 5,000.

Lately reopened universities and faculties, in addition to libraries, mosques, cinemas, museums and wonder salons, shut down.

Movement restrictions this spring somewhat checked the spread of the disease. Since June, the case depend has steadily elevated - and spiked to new heights in current weeks. The fallout from the outbreak has hit the country as its economy is already crippled by sweeping USA sanctions.

Meanwhile on Saturday, the United Arab Emirates has announced its highest single-day total of new cases of the coronavirus amid a spike in the Gulf nation that is home to Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

While coming amid an aggressive testing campaign, the upward trend has raised fears that authorities could reinstate lockdowns in parts of the country that rely heavily on tourism. But actual numbers might be higher, doctors in Baghdad and Iraq's south said, as patients showing mild to moderate virus symptoms often stay at home and do not get tested for COVID-19.

Iran is experiencing its third surge of coronavirus infections and says its fight against the coronavirus has been hampered by US sanctions, which have limited its crude oil sales and its access to foreign banks.
