Iran's confirmed case total passes 50,000 mark

Another 124 coronavirus-related deaths were reported in Iran on Thursday, bringing the total death toll to 3,160, Health Ministry spokesman Kianush Jahanpoor said on state TV.

The overall number of cases in the country meanwhile reached 50,468, with an extra 2,875 reported over the past 24 hours, Jahanpoor said. 

A total of 16,711 patients have recovered and been released from hospitals across the country, while 3,965 hospitalized patients remain in critical condition, he added.

Iran has been the hardest-hit country in the Middle East, trailing only China, the United States and four European nations in Johns Hopkins University's tally of total confirmed cases.
