YEREVAN. – The situation with the coronavirus is under control in the Armenian Armed Forces. Deputy Minister of Defense Gabriel Balayan stated this at Wednesday’s sitting of the National Assembly.
The official admitted, however, that there are still people infected with this disease in the army. "They are under supervision. The virus is mainly confirmed among those who have already been isolated in the past. They are the ones who have the opportunity to leave the military units and return; that is, we are talking about conscripts, not cadets," Balayan explained.
According to him, the coronavirus cases in the Armenian army are recorded mainly among contract soldiers and officers. At the same time, Balayan stressed that there is no shortage of medicine in the army and of beds in military hospitals.
The deputy minister also assured that the leadership of the Armed Forces is closely following the maintenance of security measures in the military units.
