The coronavirus situation in Armenia remains dire. This past weekend, the country reported about 1,000 coronavirus cases, and the healthcare system still has a heavy workload. This is what Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated during a briefing held after the session of the Commandant’s Office today.
“There is bad news in all countries because those countries have declared the start of a new wave of the coronavirus. On Saturday, I toured a district in Yerevan and distributed face masks, and the main problem that I noticed was that citizens don’t believe in the impact that their behavior has on the coronavirus situation. I was surprised to hear several citizens say they don’t know anyone with the coronavirus. This means there are still people who haven’t faced this problem.
When the government sees that the healthcare system can’t serve citizens anymore, the only way out of the situation will be to declare another lockdown, knowing well that this will deal a major blow to the economy,” he said.
