Iran shutters newspaper after expert questions official Covid-19 numbers

Iran shut down newspaper Jahane Sanat after it published remarks by Mahboobfar, an epidemiologist who said the official figures on Covid-19 cases & deaths in the country account for only 5% of the real toll. Sadi, the editor-in-chief of Jahane Sanat, told the official IRNA news agency that authorities closed his newspaper, which began publishing in 2004 and was mainly focused on business news.
