Nikol Pashinyan: It is necessary to do everything necessary to  maintain a large number of COVID-19 testing
ArmInfo.Everything needed to be done to maintain the high volume of COVID-19 testing. RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this at a government meeting on  August 27. According to him, the last six days in the country there has been a  steady downward trend (on average, 200 cases) in the number of cases  of a new type of coronavirus.

"Once again, I would like to draw your  attention to the need to maintain sanitary and epidemiological  standards. In fact, we can state that, according to last week's data,  the trend towards a decrease in the number of sick citizens  continues," the head of government noted, adding that the trend is  related to the quality of these norms. "Once again I want to appeal  to citizens with an appeal to be as attentive as possible to the  problem, since overcoming the consequences of the epidemic is  directly related to the individual responsibility of each of us.  Moreover, there has been some relaxation in maintaining the rules,"  the Prime Minister said, recalling that the to date, the country has  recorded 864 deaths from coronavirus, and 265 deaths from coronavirus  patients who died for other reasons. "We express our condolences to  the families and friends of the deceased," Nikol Pashinyan said.
