As of yesterday we had 41 people in Tsakhkadzor and 6 families in Yerevan. I can't say the number of people, but since the process of isolation is taking place right now. the number of isolates will increase and we will announce the final number. It is not excluded that the number of isolates will increase by 10-20.

He also reminded that the infected person is not contaminated after five minutes or two days because a large amount of virus is needed to get rid of it and infect others.

"Therefore, this scheme of detecting, testing, isolating contactors is the only effective scheme to break the chain of disease," he said, adding that the disease is new, noting that since the day the person was considered to be infected, it is very difficult. however, when the patient does not cough or sneeze, the chance of infecting the other person is very low.
Torosyan also clarified that at present the mechanisms of administrative responsibility for the self-isolated are being discussed.

Recall that earlier one case of coronavirus was detected in Armenia. Thus, the total number of infected is 4.
