Armenia's Prime Minister, NikolPashinyan together with his family has tested positive to COVID-19. He revealed he does not present with any symptoms and would continue to work from the prime minister's residence.
The PM himself made the announcement via Facebook on Monday, in a self-recorded video, as the rate of new infections soared in the Caucasian nation.
Pashinyan, who has four kids with his wife Anna Hakobyan, a journalist, said he probably caught the virus in one of the work meetings he had attended.
Stressing that Armenia is not "doing well" in combatting the COVID-19 virus, he urged citizens to learn to live with it.
The prime minister again urged citizens to always wear face masks and regularly disinfect hands.
The ex-Soviet republic of some three million has so far reported 9,492 cases of the coronavirus and 139 deaths.
