Hotels in Armenia to house asymptomatic coronavirus patients

Public Radio of Armenia

The Armenian Government will negotiate with hotels to organize the isolation of patients, who have tested positive for the coronavirus, but receive no treatment.  

The Prime Minister said at a government sitting that they will agree a price with hotels. According to him, this will be a kind of support to hotels as the tourism sector is completely down.

Health Minister Arsen Torosyan said the option is widely acceptable in the world. He noted that 1,000 patients in Israel have been accommodated in hotels.

The Prime Minister noted that analysis shows that the scenario of COVID-19 spread in Armenia is not the worst one, it is developing close to the best scenarios in the world.

He added, however, that to keep the situation under control we have to abide by the lockdown rules.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
