Armenia may face a new lockdown, the Prime Minister says

Armenia may have to impose a new total lockdown if people do not follow hygiene rules, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said after the number of confirmed coronavirus cases topped 10 000.

Pashinyan, who tested positive along with other members of his family on Monday, warned that a new lockdown could cause a severe economic crisis.

“Either the rules are not followed and we go to complete restrictions accompanied by a curfew, subjecting the country to new social and economic shocks, or we cooperate and take control of the situation and achieve quick results. We have 1-3 days to change this situation”, - said the Prime Minister.
