A deadly outbreak of the swine flu disease is spreading across Iran, with at least 33 deaths having been reported in the country’s southwestern region during the past several weeks, according to reports.

The virus is likely to “spread to other areas,” including the capital city of Tehran, according to Iranian health officials quoted by the state-controlled media.

“The health ministry predicts that the virus will spread in the coming days to Tehran, West and East Azarbaijan, and Kermanshah provinces more than to other areas,” the Iranian health ministry was quoted as saying.
