An Adviser to the Ministry, Hossein Hassanian, told the News Agency
“The difference in death tallies is because some alcohol poisoning victims died outside of the hospital. Some 200 people died outside of hospitals. The final tally of people who lost their eyesight could be much higher.”
According to a Government Report Released Earlier in April, Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic,
“Alcohol poisoning has skyrocketed by ten times over in Iran in the past year, alcohol poisoning killed 728 Iranians between Feb 20 and April 7. Last year there were only 66 deaths from alcohol poisoning.”
The Iranian Health Ministry Spokesman, Kianoush Jahanpour said,
“525 people have died from swallowing toxic methanol alcohol since Feb 20, a total of 5,011 people had been poisoned from methanol alcohol. Some 90 people have lost their eyesight or are suffering eye damage from alcohol poisoning.”
Methanol is Lethal for Human Consumption
It is venomous and cannot be smelled or tasted in drinks. Moreover, it causes delayed organ and brain impairment. Symptoms may include chest pain, nausea, hyperventilation, blindness and even more severe condition to coma. Though in Iran, the government mandates that manufacturers of toxic methanol would add artificial colour to detect the poison, so the public can tell it apart from ethanol, the kind of alcohol that can be used in cleaning wounds. Ethanol is found in alcoholic beverages, though its production is illegal in Iran.
The Consumption of Alcohol is Generally Prohibited in Iran
Though, minority Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians can drink alcoholic beverages in private capacities. Some bootleggers in Iran use methanol, adding a splash of bleach to mask the added colour before selling it as drinkable. Methanol also can contaminate customarily enflamed alcohol. Iran has currently some 40 alcohol factory that has been assigned for pharmaceutical and sanitizing items. Ensuing the coronavirus outbreak, Iran’s government proclaimed,
“Government would issue permission for new alcohol factories quickly.”
