ArmInfo.During the consultation chaired by Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic in the country and the vaccination process were discussed.

As the press service of the RA PM reports, Minister of Health Anahit  Avanesyan noted that during the last day 19,360 tests were carried  out in the country, out of which 1863 cases of the disease were  confirmed. According to the Minister, as a result of the rules  applied from October 1, the rate of testing of the citizens has  sharply increased, as a result of which the number of positive tests  has also increased. According to her, this contributes to the early  detection of the infection and the prevention of its further spread.   According to the Minister, 22 medical centers have been set up in the  country for the treatment of coronavirus, and the number of beds will  be increased by 350 in the coming days, bringing the total number to  2877.

In several medical centers in Yerevan, Sevan and Hrazdan new  departments will be appropriated for coronavirus treatment starting  from Monday. Currently, there are 2019 beds in the inpatient  departments of medical centers, and 382 beds in the intensive care  units. It was noted that 930 people are in serious condition, 222  people are in critical condition, 89 patients are connected to lung  ventilation equipment.

Referring to the inoculation process, the Minister noted that 16,722  citizens have been vaccinated in the last day, bringing the total  number of vaccinated citizens to 583,745.

Exchange of views on the activities to maintain the anti-pandemic  rules to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to promote the  vaccination process took place. Reference was made to the results of  the decree approved by the Ministry of Health, which came into force  on October 1, 2021, according to which economic operators must  require their employees to have a vaccination certificate or a  negative PCR test once every 14 days.

A number of issues related to the consistent implementation of  measures against the spread of coronavirus and ensuring their  effectiveness were discussed. In this context, the continuous  increase of the pace of the vaccination process, the infrastructural  capacities were highlighted, especially the ensuring of strict  control over the process of wearing masks in closed areas.

The Prime Minister instructed the heads of the corresponding  departments to continue actively fight against the violations of the  anti-pandemic rules, to give a new impetus to the promotion of the  vaccination process in order to keep the epidemic situation under  control and to ensure public health responsibility. Wide public  awareness was highlighted in this context.
