ArmInfo.In Armenia, the situation with coronavirus continues to deteriorate. This was announced on June 2 at a briefing in Yerevan by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan. According to him, 517 new cases of COVID-19 incidence were recorded in the country per day, the total number of deaths was 175.
The reason, as the head of government noted, is the neglect of the rules of conduct established by the commandant of the state of emergency. The government is confident that strict adherence to these rules will lead to a decrease in the incidence rate, up to a zero mark. Nikol Pashinyan noted that after the events of 2018, the atmosphere of fear disappeared in the country, which, in turn, led to problems with compliance with legal norms.
For example, violations are detected in the distribution network, the network closes, but voices are heard about spoilage of products and damage suffered. In Armenia, as the prime minister noted, the lack of administrative rigidity is obvious., Which leads to an aggravation of the situation.
In this regard, at today's meeting of the commandant's office, the prime minister strictly demanded that law enforcement agencies take the most active measures to correct the situation, while eliminating all objective and subjective factors. The prime minister noted that de jure strict restrictions exist in the camp, but de facto this is not. "I will personally control the situation. We have to understand one thing: either we are following the path of severe restrictions, and, thus, we are putting the country in front of serious social and economic upheavals, or we are taking control of the situation," the head of the Armenian government said. . He added that no matter what, tough measures will be applied against violators, the failure of which will lead to specific consequences. Nikol Pashinyan noted that there is still time, and it is necessary to radically change the situation over the next 2-3 days.
