Speaking on Saturday afternoon at the inauguration ceremony of the national plans of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education in the 87th move of 'Prudence and Hope for Surge in Production' campaign, Dr Hassan Rouhani stated that in this government a great transformation in the health sector in terms of infrastructure and what has been created in terms of specialised manpower has happened.

He said, "In this government, in addition to the reconstruction and renovation of 110,000 hospital beds in the country, 40,000 new hospital beds were added to the hospital capacity".

Referring to the inauguration of 1,443 hospital beds in today's inaugurations in different provinces across the country, Dr Rouhani said, "In less than two years, 13,000 hospital beds have been put into operation in the country, which is a great achievement".

The President said that if anyone can ignore and deny the services of this government by leaving aside justice, the measures taken in the health sector will not be denied.

Referring to the reports that hospital beds in Sistan and Baluchistan have increased sevenfold, Dr Rouhani said, "This statistic shows that more work has been done in this government for deprived areas and more efforts have been made to eliminate both deprivation and spreading justice and development in the health sector".

Dr Rouhani also thanked all those who are working in different provinces across the country to fight the spread of coronavirus and said, "The fifth peak of COVID-19 in many provinces is higher than all previous peaks and in some provinces has not yet reached its highest point".

"I must sincerely thank those who have sacrificed their lives in the field of fighting this dangerous virus and who have made people calm," he said.

At the end of the ceremony, Dr Rouhani was awarded a plaque of appreciation by the Minister of Health and the country's medical staff for his efforts as head of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus.
