ArmInfo.The control over the spread of COVID-19 in Armenia is encouraging. A similar opinion was expressed by ArmInfo, Armenian MP from the "My Step" block Arusyak Dzhulakyan.
"Fortunately, the number of patients infected with coronavirus in our country is growing in a certain number, but not exponentially. And if we can control the foci of infection, we can ascertain the ability to cut the chain of the virus. In this fight, as we all see "The government spares no efforts and efforts. And the same people cured of the infection, whose number, fortunately, is also growing, testify to the serious, close to self-sacrifice work of our health workers," she emphasized.
According to Dzhulakyan, coercive measures on the part of the state against citizens related to the threat of coronavirus are not serious, quite natural. And all crowds of citizens, bypassing the instructions of the commandant's office, should and will be punished accordingly, including through law enforcement agencies.
According to the parliamentarian, the natural course of life of the citizens of Armenia has already been violated, which must be accepted as an objective reality. According to her estimates, it is almost impossible to predict something in a similar situation, in the context of the war with a pandemic, which today affects the whole world. In this light, Dzhulakyan found it difficult to assess the situation after April 14, the deadline for completing the state of emergency in the country.
"The future situation around the coronavirus depends on the course of its further spread. As far as I understand, our task should not be to prevent the coronavirus, but to distribute the patients in time in order to satisfy the needs at our disposal. The fight continues," the parliamentarian summed up.
