Episode Info:

From the numbers, it was looking like Iran managed to flatten the coronavirus curve. But many Iranians are skeptical of those numbers. They fear the country’s severe shortage of testing and medical equipment — caused largely by US sanctions — has left Iran with few resources in a fight that’s nowhere near over, and could get a lot worse.

In this episode:

Dr. Rasha Ahmadi, an ER doctor in Tehran; Homa, a 27-year-old Iranian teacher; and Hamed Mousavi, a professor of political science at the University of Tehran.
