The health ministry of Iran has warned of a fourth wave of Covid-19, that could cause coronavirus cases to surge in coming weeks, in a news ticker on Iran’s state-run TV.
The country reported 6,268 new daily coronavirus cases on Sunday, bringing the country's total number to 1,417,999.
The new numbers were announced by Iran’s Health Ministry spokeswoman Sima Sadaat Lari in a news conference on state TV.
She also reported 70 new deaths from Covid-19, bringing the country's death toll to 57,959.
The health ministry said 3,932 patients are hospitalized in ICU.
The country continues to keep restrictions in place to try and avoid a larger outbreak of cases.
Iran is the Middle East country hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic in total cases and deaths.
Former US President Donald Trump's "maximum pressure" sanctions, have hampered the Covid-19 fight, say Iranian officials and doctors.
