Arsen Torosyan did not resign: He is going on vacation
ArmInfo.The rumors that the Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan has resigned are untrue. Press secretary of the Ministry of Health of Armenia Alina Nikoghosyan  stated this in an interview with ArmInfo correspondent. To note, these rumors were also denied by press secretary of  Prime  Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan Mane Gevorgyan. According to the  press service of the government, from August 21 to September 18  inclusive, Torosyan goes on vacation. Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol  Pashinyan signed this decision on August 25. "During the vacation,  Arsen Torosyan will be replaced by First Deputy Anahit Avanesyan,"  the government's decision emphasizes. It should be noted that a number of Armenian media outlets reported  that Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan had resigned. This assumption,  in particular, is based on the fact that the Minister, such an active  user of social networks, for some reason deleted his accounts on the  Facebook, both official and personal. Also, some media outlets disseminated information that Torosyan  decided to resign, but the Armenian Prime Minister does not intend to  sign the statement, as he instructed law enforcement officers to  check the rumors about the embezzlement of state funds by the  Minister during the coronavirus pandemic. To note, the public also  accused the Minister of distributing government orders among his  relatives and close friends.
