The Iranian Health Ministry on Tuesday reported 25,492 new COVID-19 cases, taking the country's total infections to 2,286,927.

The pandemic has so far claimed 67,525 lives in Iran, up by 395 in the past 24 hours, said Sima Sadat Lari, spokeswoman for the Iranian Ministry of Health and Medical Education, during her daily briefing.

A total of 1,810,531 people have recovered from the disease or been discharged from hospitals across the country, while 4,911 remain in intensive care units, she noted.

The spokeswoman added that more than 14.61 million tests have so far been carried out across the country.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that his government is aiming to carry out a national vaccination campaign.

The country has been subject to the pressures and threats of an economic war and inhumane sanctions imposed by its enemy, Rouhani said, cited by the official IRNA news agency.

Iran reported its initial COVID-19 cases in February 2020.
