A further 1,869 people tested positive for COVID-19, raising the overall count to 133,521, said the Health Ministry spokesman Kianoush Jahanpour.

Jahanpour said no deaths have been reported in 14 states of the country in the past 24 hours due to COVID-19.
In Iran, one of the countries in the Middle East hardest hit by the disease, COVID-19 was first detected in the city of Qom on Feb. 19 and then spread throughout the country.
More than 5.23 million cases have been reported in 188 countries and regions since the virus emerged in China last December.
