Deputy Prime Minister: The threat of a second wave of coronavirus in  Armenia should never be discounted
ArmInfo.The threat of a second wave of coronavirus should never be discounted. Deputy Prime  Minister Tigran Avinyan stated this on August 12, presenting a draft  decision on the extension of the state of emergency for 30 days to  the RA National Assembly. According to him, the state of emergency introduced from March 16 and  last extended from 5:00pm on 12 August will continue to operate until  5:00pm on 11 September. At the same time, there are some concessions.  In particular, the ban on entry into the country of persons who do  not have Armenian citizenship, who, nevertheless, if not  hospitalized, undertake to undergo a 14-day quarantine and self-  isolate, is lifted. But if within 14 days these persons, having  passed the relevant tests, received negative conclusions, the  self-isolation regime will change. The ban on holding rallies and  hunger strikes is also excluded, which is replaced by a permit with  mandatory conditions for maintaining anti-epidemiological standards.  In particular, we are talking about wearing masks and maintaining  social distance at a distance of at least 1.5 meters. The conditions  for holding family and other events, both outdoors and in closed  rooms, are facilitated, but no more than 40 people, while maintaining  the requirements of the commandant of the state of emergency. The restrictions on the movement of goods across borders are lifted.  The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that some of the relaxation is a  logical continuation of the trend towards an improvement in the  epidemiological situation in the country. They will continue if the  dynamics remain positive. Nevertheless, as the Deputy Prime Minister  noted, there is a threat of a second wave of coronavirus, and this  threat is associated with the beginning of the educational process in  the republic's schools. But even this risk, according to the Deputy  Prime Minister, is quite manageable
