Armenia: 26 new coronavirus cases, 78 total. First day after declaring state of emergency
JAMnews, Yerevan
March 17, 2020

Details on the situation in the "closed" city of Echmiadzin, alcohol prices, access to essential goods, and restrictions on media activity

original-4-785x487.jpg

In Armenia, the first day of life in a state of emergency declared on the evening of March 16 to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

By the end of March 17, 26 new coronavirus cases had been diagnosed. This brings the total number of cases to 78. One patient has already recovered and was discharged from the hospital.

The majority of those who were diagnosed on March 17 had already been in isolation. They are all people who had been in contact with previously identified cases.

New nationwide restrictions are being introduced.  In particular, the government announced a list of countries whose residents are banned from entering Armenia starting March 17.

Details below about the situation in the “closed” city of Echmiadzin, alcohol prices, access to essential goods, and the work of the media in a state of emergency

• Armenia declares 30-day state of emergency due to coronavirus

• Coronavirus in the Caucasus: updated facts and figures, 15-16 March, 2020

Additional restrictions in Etchmiadzin 

The epicenter of the disease in Armenia is the city of Echmiadzin, about 20 kilometers from Yerevan. Most of the infected are located there.

Among the new cases are those who were in contact with the first person infected in Echmiadzin. The woman in question returned home from Italy and, instead of self-isolating, attended several crowded events.

Therefore, the city is almost completely quarantined

There are 27 roads leading out of Echmiadzin, but the government decided to close all but three. Doctors are taking the temperature of all people attempting to leave, and if it is above average, they are either sent to hospitals, or home to self-isolate.

Entry ban in Armenia

A list of 16 countries has been announced where the coronavirus situation is especially difficult, so those who come from these countries will not be able to enter Armenia.

The full list of countries is as follows: China, Iran, South Korea, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, Great Britain.

Armenian citizens returning home from these countries must undergo a 14-day quarantine.

These restrictions do not apply to cargo transportation.

The media

The Armenian government announced restrictions on the dissemination of information during the state of emergency–both in the media and on social networks. Authorities explained that they want to prevent panic and aggressive statements addressed to victims of the coronavirus. Violators will be held civilly liable.

Any publication about coronavirus in Armenia must be based on official information released by the commandant’s office.

On March 17, the Minister of Health and his press secretary also made a statement to journalists.

“You can’t publish the names of the sick. Personal data cannot be publicized even under normal conditions, and there is all the more reason not to do so now,” stated Deputy Minister of Justice Vahe Danielyan on March 17.

Rising prices

The price of alcohol has risen in Armenia, but not because of the coronavirus, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said on March 17 on his Facebook page.

“The increase in alcohol prices is associated with changes in the tax code, the legislation on the minimum price of alcohol has changed, and the increase in prices is associated exclusively with this.”

No shortage of goods

Gegham Gevorgyan, chairman of the State Committee for the Protection of Economic Competition, urged people not to make panic purchases. He officially announced that there are no shortages or restrictions on the purchase of goods in Armenia:

“The only problem is ensuring that goods are available in stores on a daily basis, since people are purchasing huge amounts at a time, even to the point of absurdity. At this point, we just need time to deliver goods to stores from the warehouse. Perhaps, at some point, because of the excitement, the shelves become empty, but then they fill back up, and there are no problems–even at the end of the day, the shelves are full.”

The turnover of large supermarket chains increased by 30-40 percent, but the turnover of small stores decreased.

“I urge you not to forget about small and mid-sized businesses. I understand that it’s easy to buy from supermarkets, but today there are products that have accumulated in large volumes in small shops,” said the prime minister.

5000 new coronavirus test kits

Armenia will receive 5 thousand new coronavirus tests by the end of the week.

“This is enough for now, but we are working to acquire new tests, we are in constant contact with our foreign partners,” said Deputy Minister of Health Lena Nanushyan.

YEREVAN, MARCH 28, ARMENPRESS. Armenian Healthcare Minister Arsen Torosyan, Aurora Humanitarian Initiative Co-Founder Noubar Afeyan, and IDeA Foundation Co-founder, Aurora Humanitarian Initiative and UWC Dilijan International School Co-founder Ruben Vardanyan, Lord Ara Darzi, Director of the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College, London, McKinsey & Company executive Andre Andonian and Dr. David Nabarro participated in an online conference today titled “COVID-19: Challenging General Fear”.

During the online webinar the participants shared views on the current situation around the globe and also in Armenia caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus.

In his remarks Dr. David Nabarro said in order to be protected from coronavirus it’s necessary to understand what kind of a disease it is. In terms of fighting the virus he made comparisons with other pandemics faced by humanity.

Thereafter, Healthcare Minister Arsen Torosyan introduced the panelists on the COVID-19 situation in Armenia and the country’s fight against the disease.

“In the fight against coronavirus we isolate patients and urge citizens to self-quarantine if they had contacted infected people. We also isolate those citizens who are coming from the risky countries. At this moment the number of these countries is nearly 20”, the minister said.

Noubar Afeyan informed that the vaccine created by his company is currently at the stage of clinical testing. He expressed hope that the results will be ready in spring.

McKinsey & Company executive Andre Andonian commented on the topic from the perspective of economic impact. He said there are several scenarios in terms of the COVID-19 economic impact, from the best to the worst. Mr. Andonian said coronavirus will have the greatest impact on the US economy after the Second World War.

In late December 2019, Chinese authorities notified the World Health Organization (WHO) about an outbreak of a previously unknown pneumonia in the city of Wuhan, central China. WHO declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus a global pandemic and named the virus COVID-19. Cases of coronavirus have been reported in over 195 countries.

In Armenia, the total number of confirmed cases is 372 according to the latest data. 28 patients have recovered. One death case has been registered on March 26.

France and Armenia lost one of their best sons: President Sarkissian on Patrick Devedjian’s demise
 
 

France and Armenia lost one of their best sons, Armenia’s President Armen Sarkissian said on the demise of French Armenian politician Patrick Devedjian.

“I am shocked at the death of Patrick Devedjian, a prominent French-Armenian politician, chairman of the Council of the Hauts-de-Seine department,” the President said in a message.

“Patrick Devedjian was a bright politician and individual, upright, educated, responsible in his words and deeds. At the same time, he was a tireless advocate of the Armenian Cause, whose voice was heard nationally and internationally,” the President added.

He noted that after Armenia gained independence, Patrick Devedjian became one of the architects of the privileged Armenian-French relationship.

“The development of Armenia was a priority for him, and he was contributing to it with specific programs and actions,” Armen Sarkissian said.

He offered deepest condolences to Patrick Devedjian’s wife, children and grandchildren, relatives, as well as the French-Armenians and the entire Armenian nation.

Patrick Devedjian passed away last night days after being diagnosed with coronavirus.
