Pashinyan on new coronavirus cases in Armenia
The number of coronavirus cases in Armenia has risen by 11 over the past day to 833, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said.
According to him, 263 citizens were tested for the disease.
"If this is confirmed (…), it will mean that the measures that cause us a lot of inconvenience have started to yield positive results," the PM said on Facebook.
"If that is the case, it means that if more strictly abide by the restrictions of the Commandant’s Office for the 1 one week, our chances of starting to think from Monday to relax the regime and return to normal life will increase," News.am cited him as saying.
Pashinyan added that a 68-year-old compatriot died of double pneumonia, presumably the result of coronavirus, bringing the total death toll to 8.
