ArmInfo. According to preliminary estimates, the Armenian government plans to resume air communication with other countries in mid-summer. Deputy Prime Minister of Armenia, Commandant Tigran Avinyan, announced this on June 1 during a briefing.
1According to him, according to preliminary estimates, it will be in mid-July. "I think that at the next meetings of the commission on the prevention of coronavirus two important issues will be discussed - this is the restoration of the tourism sector and the resumption of flights," Avinyan said.
The logic of the struggle of the Armenian government in combating the pandemic was a phased approach, the Commandant continued, adding that in fact during the past 5 months two phases of measures were taken to prevent the spread of the virus: a ban on movement and economic activities with a parallel strengthening and preparation of the health system for the epidemic. According to him, at the same time preparations were underway to establish the production of our own tests.
At the same time, Avinyan stated that the second stage involved easing the restrictions of the regime, with a shift in the burden on the health care system in view of the increase in infected restrictions caused by the relaxation of the restrictions. He stated that both stages lasted 6 weeks.
"Today we see an increase in the number of infected people, but so far the situation is under control and the health care system is coping with the load," the Commandant said, adding that the first batch of 350 tests of own production will be delivered to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention of the Ministry of Health of RA , and plus up to 3000 tests a day will be produced by the Institute of Molecular Biology. In conclusion, the Commandant again called on citizens to comply with the measures voiced by the commandant.
