Tehran/Sputnik/UNI:  Iran’s Health Ministry on Wednesday reported 2,205 new coronavirus cases over the past 24 hours with 143 people losing their lives.

The total number of deaths from COVID-19 in the country has now surpassed 2,000 with over 27,000 cases of infection.

This is the highest one-day increase in coronavirus cases since the outbreak began in February.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has repeatedly claimed over the past week that the peak of the outbreak in the country appears to have been passed, though most health authorities did not support that statement.
