Iran released 70 thousand prisoners due to coronavirus


In Iran, 70 thousand people were released from prison. This was done to prevent the spread of coronavirus.


This statement was made by the President of the Supreme Court of the Islamic Republic, Ibrahim Raisi.

First of all, those who had concomitant diseases were released.

The head of the judicial branch of the country added that the authorities will continue to release prisoners further, but not to the detriment of public safety. He believes that a nation should rally to fight Covid-19:

To cope with the coronavirus, the determination and unity of the nation is necessary.

The head of the Supreme Court appealed to the Iranian authorities to provide medical facilities with the necessary equipment and provide maximum assistance to doctors.

Raisi did not say whether the convicts would return to prison after the recession wave.

Over the past day, the number of cases in Iran has increased by 595 people. At the same time, 43 Iranians died.

The big problem in the country was not only the coronavirus itself, but also the hype around it. For example, false rumors circulating in social networks that methyl alcohol helps in treating infections have led to loss of vision in four people. Seven more were poisoned to death with methanol.

        A colleague with beer is harmful. Beer is yeast, the fermentation process - there the coronavirus will only get stronger :)

    A strange approach, how are prisoners and the fight against the virus? Here, on the contrary, they try to quarantine the sick.

      The country under sanctions, with the money a lot of stress.
      High mortality among prisoners - an extra trump card in the hands of the American propaganda

      That's why they let them out, let them die in freedom. "The first to be released were those with comorbidities. "

        But by such actions they themselves are spreading the epidemic. Who knows where this prisoner will go and what he will do.

          Apparently, there are no epidemics in places of detention. But with high probability she will eventually appear there.
          And it will be terrible.
          So they release the "weak link".
          Well, plus, the fewer people in places not so remote, the easier it is to implement sanitary measures.

    false rumors spread in social networks that methyl alcohol helps treat infections

    The problem of fakes is very acute in modern life. Engaged in stuffing false information come from the belief that it’s easier to deceive a person by planting a lie, which ultimately leads to the fact that a person will no longer understand where the truth is and where is fiction. And people begin to sincerely believe in the spread of false information. It is also impossible to exclude economic and political motives that use stuffing in their interests.

    Only those prisoners are released who do not have a coronavirus, and only if they have made a pledge for themselves. BUT-do not let go of criminals whose term exceeds five years, or which pose a special danger.
    And, according to the stories of a familiar Iranian, the prisons there are crowded so that it is impossible to imagine.

    I hope they released a political prisoner who, for whatever reason, the Islamists keep in prison but most likely ordinary criminals

      But the financiers of all Western (and not only) countries joyfully rub their hands. They thought for a long time how to explain the impending economic crisis, and here on you, such happiness, coronavirus. Now there will be something to write off the exorbitantly inflated financial bubbles, debts and another crisis of capitalism. That's all not healthy hype, in a nutshell.

        Absolutely yeah. It would have “bursted" already, only the reason would have been little comforting for any "advanced" party.
        There wouldn’t be a virus, they would come up with something like that anyway.

    Somehow strange much coincides. Moreover, if you recall a series of recent cancers of the unwanted US leaders.
    Whom the US "does not like" most: China, Iran, Russia, North. Korea. China seems to have been shut out of the economic game for a long time. Iran - judging by information in the press, the pandemic is growing. And it is not known what it will pour into ... It somehow becomes uncomfortable.
    They say that coronavirus kills old people. So VO can become depopulated and the PF will not have to solve problems with pensions ... Well, then the Young Russians will restore what we have not saved. And the young people will not argue about the war with conservatives, there will be no time to waste, but they will work ... It's sad ... And really, it's not fun ...

      Coronavirus mortality is still an order of magnitude lower than that of Merc. And in pure numbers, the coronavirus is not even near the usual flu.
      What do you think there, people. Really guppy fish.

        Pure numbers? These are absolute, but not relative indicators or what?
        Frederic Tangi, Sergei Netesov, or WHO Director-General Tedros Gebreyesus say that mortality from coronavirus is higher than mortality from influenza. True, their indicators are already 30 times different.

      Well, the answer is simple, I think, all of these regimes with medicine are not very good, except that China is firmly on its feet, but it is also a source of a pandemic, with hygiene and consumption of all living things, of course

    In general, not everything is clear with this coronavirus. Looking at the atlas of diseases, I was not surprised to see Mongolia. Besides Egypt, all of Africa is free from this scourge. Maybe it's a matter of time?

    Since when does the early mass release of prisoners from prisons help unification of the nation? Nonsense.
    To cope with coronavirus, determination and unity of the nation are needed
    Maybe all the same, think about medical methods.

    Of course, this is with the virus no more than PR action. But it’s interesting how the virus is used in geopolitical maps, something new ...
    Option exploitation of fear in order to achieve ... something then.

    It would be better if they were taken to the border of the European Union and released there.
