It is very important to understand the reasons why people are so careless about anti-epidemic rules, said Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan on Wednesday during the briefing.
"I can say that as of June 1 this year, we have 357 fewer deaths than in 2019. Moreover, in May 2020, 320 fewer deaths were recorded in Armenia. I want to talk about the causes and consequences of this phenomenon," he said noting that at first, people who died last year from other causes have died this year from the COVID-19.
According to him, the death toll has also decreased in Armenia because many people were hospitalized and treated not only for COVID-19 but also for other diseases.
