Sandstorms in Iran: Over 800 people hospitalised

Tehran: Hundreds of people were sent to hospitals due to the dust storms in the Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan over the past five days, the state media reported.

According to reports, a total of 833 people have been admitted to hospitals.

Majid Mohebi, head of the province’s Disaster Mitigation and Management Organisation, told IRIB that 128 of those people had been hospitalised mostly for breathing problems, heart or eye conditions caused by the sand storms.

Seyed Mohammad Mehdi Sajjadi, the head of the Sistan and Baluchestan Red Crescent Society, said that more than 6,000 face masks were distributed to local residents in the storm-affected areas of the province.

Strong winds are expected to continue in the coming days, which may cause more sand storms, Mohsen Heidari, director general of the province's meteorological organization, was quoted as saying.

The province typically experiences strong summer winds from May to late September every year.
