The pandemic has so far claimed 74,241 lives in Iran, up by 335 in the past 24 hours, Sima Sadat Lari, spokeswoman of the Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education, said during her daily briefing in the country.

A total of 2,074,089 people have recovered from the disease or been discharged from hospitals across the country, while 5,534 remain in intensive care units, said Lari.
