An Iranian Ministry of Health spokesman pointed out that since February 20, 5011 people have been poisoned by accidentally drinking toxic methanol, of which 525 people died and about 90 people were blind or have eye damage. Hassanian, an adviser to the Ministry of Health, said that the difference between the two figures is because about 200 people did not die in the hospital. He also said that the total number of blindness may eventually be more.

Iran is the Middle East country with the heaviest new pneumonia. It has a total of 91,472 cases and 5,806 people have not been treated.

Iran prohibits alcohol and can only obtain private wine if it wants to drink alcohol. The government requires methanol plants to add artificial colors to their products to differentiate them from medical ethanol (alcohol). Adviser Hassanian of the Ministry of Health said that other countries only need to deal with the pandemic, but they have two fronts to treat people with alcoholism and fight the new coronary pneumonia virus disease. According to a report released by the Iranian government in early April, 66 people died in Iran throughout the year.
