PM Pashinyan: Yerevan Is The Epicenter Of The Coronavirus.

Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, State of Emergency Commandant, Deputy Prime Minister Tigran Avinyan and Healthcare Minister Arsen Torosyan held an online briefing after today’s regular meeting of the Commandant’s Office.

In the words of the PM, the epidemic situation  in the country continues worsening with recent spike in new cases and death numbers.

“Analysis show that Yerevan is the epicenter of the infection. The potential sources for the spread of the disease are everywhere  – at  the workplaces, in the street, banks, restaurants and cafes. We do believe that the solution is only following the prescribed safety rules – the mass wearing of face masks and keeping the social distance,” Pashinyan said.

The Prime Minister also called not to give in speculations and misinformation regarding the mass use of the masks as the situation is quite serious.

“We have not urged anyone to buy masks, as you can make them at home. Studies by specialists show that even home-made masks and their proper use can significantly prevent the spread of the virus,” Pashinyan stressed.
