Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced this morning that he and his family tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday. They are self-isolating in the Prime Minister’s residence.
The PM said that they were not showing any symptoms and that he would continue to work from self-isolation.
Pashinyan said he was tested for the virus because he was planning a visit to ‘the frontlines’.
He stated that he believed he was infected during a government consultation for coronavirus prevention work during which glasses for water were set on the table by a staff member who was not wearing gloves and who has since tested positive for the virus.
