Hakob Shahgaldyan, the mayor of Charentsavan, Armenia, has become infected with the coronavirus; this information was confirmed by the mayor himself in a conversation with Armenian News-NEWS.am.
"There wasn’t even a need for a test because the symptoms completely coincided," said the mayor.
Shahgaldyan noted that he was receiving treatment at home. "I'm sure I'll be better in a few days," he added, in particular.
Asked whether there are other infected people in Charentsavan city hall, Hakob Shahgaldyan said that when he had felt the first symptoms, he had immediately self-isolated.
The mayor noted that if they had been people infected from him, they would have had some respective symptoms by now, but there is no such thing yet.
