Pashinyan: "No Coronavirus Cases in Armenia"
Armenian PM Nikol Pashinyan, in a Facebook post today, declared that no cases of the coronavirus infection have yet been reported in Armenia, adding that he hoped none would ever surface.
Pashinyan said the country has all the means at its disposal to accurately detect it.
Pashinyan, in his post after the country’s Coronavirus Prevention Commission had wrapped up its meeting today, wrote that all land links with neighboring Iran would be suspended for two weeks and that partial restrictions would be placed on air travel.
He did not provide specifics.
Pashinyan did say that Iranians in Armenia and vice-versa would be allowed to return to their home countries without restriction.
Cargo traffic between Armenia and Iran would continue per normal. The drivers, however, would be screened for the virus.
