Today during a briefing the Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan noted that many people still do not follow the anti-epidemic rules.
"On Saturdays and Sundays we saw on social media and learned about many summer parties, mass pilgrimages, we saw that despite the fact that many organizations have made markings to maintain social distance, they are not actually used.
I consider it necessary to emphasize - the numbers show that all of us, without exception, have shown a contemptuous attitude towards anti-epidemic rules as much as we could", said the Prime Minister, adding that we all need to review the behavior, otherwise the situation will not be overcome.
The Prime Minister noted that the state administration bodies, including customs offices, branches providing state license plates, passport departments, healthcare organizations, social assistance centers, examination centers, conscription stations, should first of all observe anti-epidemic rules, and their leaders must take personal responsibility for enforcing anti-epidemic rules in territory of their organizations.
Pashinyan said that the Police should first of all show a high level of responsibility for the observance of anti-epidemic rules in their ranks, they should not ignore any violations. The Prime Minister added - overcoming this crisis depends on our collective efforts and will.
"Each of us needs to realize that if we don't follow the anti-epidemic rules most likely we condemn others to death", the Prime Minister said. According to him, professional analysis shows that the best scenario for overcoming the epidemic is to increase discipline, as a result of which we will overcome the economic crisis and difficulties in the best possible scenario.
Pashinyan informed that currently 123 patients are in critical and 529 patients are in serious condition, 1739 patients are diagnosed with pneumonia.
"We intend to make widespread restrictions only in extreme cases", also said Nikol Pashinyan.
