Open letter to the Director-General of the World Health Organization
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus
Dear Mr. Tedros
Director-General of the World Health Organization,
Thank you very
much for your realistic concern about the rapid and widespread of
Coronavirus in Iran.
Your sympathy and sense of responsibility for the
poor health and living conditions of Iranians is far greater than
those of the current Iranian government.
You certainly know that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a totalitarian
real representatives of the nation have no role in the government
and the lives and property of the Iranian nation are in constant
danger due to the bloody dictatorship inside the country and
creating tension abroad.
Iran is one of the countries with the highest prevalence of Coronavirus
Despite the spread of this deadly disease since late September 2019
in the religious city of Qom, the Iranian government has hesitated
to give any information to the public in the first three days.
Iranian government not only has refrained from taking any measures to
prevent the Coronavirus from spreading, but also has encouraged
people to participate in the anniversary of the revolution on
February 11, 2020 as well as in the parliamentary elections on
February 21, in order to reach his political goals and pretend to
have the support of the people.
The Iranian government still conceals the true extent of the outbreak and
other relevant information from the public.
Doctors and reporters who are reporting just part of
this tragedy are arrested and jailed. There
are still no exact statistics on infected cases of Coronavirus and
the mortality rate in Iran.
According to The New York Times, “the secrecy and ambiguity of the
spread of the Coronavirus in Iran is suspected to be far higher than
the official announcement by the Iranian government”.
Since Feb. 19 till Feb. 23. the official authorities reported 43
cases of infection with the Coronavirus, whereas according to
research which is done by University of Toronto in Canada, this
number is estimated as high as 18300.
So, the Iranian government has not only irresponsibly endangered the lives
of many people and medical staff in hospitals, but also has put the
people of the region and the entire world at greater risk of
catching this dangerous virus.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has in complete disregard for the lives
of Iranian people even refused to accept the direct assistance of
Iranian compatriots abroad or has rejected the humanitarian aid from
some countries due to some ideological reasons. Due to the lack of
government planning, the lack of necessary equipment and the
readiness to deal with this epidemic virus, the Iranian people has
every right to receive any assistance available.
Front Organizations Abroad is a political organization which is
prohibited to engage in any public activities in Iran. By pursuing the path of Dr.
Mossadegh, the founder of this organization, we continue to fights
for freedom, democracy and the separation of religion and state.
Hereby, we sincerely thank you,
the Director-General of the World Health Organization and someone who
cares for fellow men, sending medical equipment, including Coronavirus detection
kits, masks and respiratory devices to Iran. As an international
authority, we expect you to urge the Iranian government to end its
secrecy and provide accurate statistics on Coronavirus infections in
order to prevent further deaths of innocent Iranians and reduce the
risk to the international community and do not hinder the acceptance
of foreign aid and direct assistance to fellow citizens and prevent
further spread of the Coronavirus and save the lives of those
It is natural that we Iranians abroad are ready to provide any direct
assistance to our compatriots in Iran and actively support the
rescue efforts of the World Health Organization in order to prevent
the abuse of donations by government officials that are common in
the Islamic Republic.
Hereby we call on other humanitarian organizations, such as Doctors Without
Reporters Without Borders (Reporters
the International Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations,
helping us to save the Iranian nation.
