ArmInfo. To prevent the spread of coronavirus, it is necessary to strengthen anti-epidemiological standards, and not vice versa. RA Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan stated at a briefing on August 5.
According to him, in spite of the fact that the 288 new cases of diseases recorded the day before are lower than 700 or 720, as it was in July, nevertheless, per capita, the figure noted the day before is very significant. It is even higher than in many other countries of the world. The measures taken by the government are already yielding positive results, which speak of positive dynamics in the development of the situation. Currently, the number of cases is already 50 cases per day less than in previous weeks, and if all precautions are maintained, there is a real chance to overcome the consequences of COVID-19. If in the past months there were 650 severe patients with coronavirus in the republic, now this figure is within 300.
There were 65 patients in extremely serious condition, another 24 citizens were connected to the artificial ventilation system. In the latter case, the figure dropped to 50. In total, 15 medical institutions in the country are engaged in the treatment of COVID-19 instead of 20 in previous months. Another 2 clinics will return to their normal activities in the coming days. Nevertheless, we cannot be complacent, but it is necessary to strengthen anti-epidemiological standards.
