YEREVAN. – There was a lot of discussion about how there is no coronavirus vaccine, but the government and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Armenia are negotiating to acquire a vaccine. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this at Thursday’s Cabinet meeting of the government.
"As the whole world is waiting for the vaccine, people are queuing up to acquire the [yet] non-existent but expected vaccine," Pashinyan added, in particular.
Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan, in his turn, said: "In fact, there is a vaccine, there are many vaccines; it's about getting final approval. Moreover, there are companies that have already produced tens of thousands [of these vaccines]. The issue here is about quick distribution after getting approval, not whether or not the product exists. Most likely, the approval will be not one, but several."
