ArmInfo. In Armenia, the condition of patients with coronavirus COVID-19 is assessed as satisfactory, there is no threat to their life. The Minister of Health of the Republic of Armenia Arsen Torosyan stated this at a government meeting on March 19.
As the Minister informed, only five out of 115 patients have body temperature exceeding 38 degrees. At the same time, there are no patients with a body temperature of 39 degrees and above. The fight against coronavirus continues in the same way: the identification of patients, the establishment of a circle of contacting people and their isolation. In some cases, a self-isolation mechanism is also used.
Speaking about the situation in the world, Torosyan drew attention to the fact that China managed to extinguish the outbreak of coronavirus, and the day before, not a single new internal infection of COVID- 19 was detected in the country. Meanwhile, the virus continues to spread in European countries, especially in Italy, Spain and France. Analysis of the situation shows that deaths from coronavirus are mainly recorded among people over 70 years of age, as well as chronic patients. With this in mind, the Minister pointed out the need to pay special attention to this category of persons in Armenia.
"When we talk about the prevalence of coronavirus in the world, it is also necessary to take into account the ability of certain countries to detect COVID-19 by testing," he said. At the same time, he also pointed out that in Britain, people who have a fever amid the absence of serious symptoms, the authorities recommend that they stay at home and not go out and work. Thus, they do not go to the doctor and, accordingly, are not taken into account. This experience, as noted by Torosyan, can also be taken into account.
