Nikol Pashinyan declared on his birthday, June 1, that he and his family had tested positive for the coronavirus and he would be working from residence.

The decision came nearly a month after Armenia elevated a state of emergency that imposed in March to slow the spread of the COVID-19.

Pashinyan conceded last week that the country’s health care system was overwhelmed and he has previously indicated his government failed to enforce anti-virus measures.

Armenia with three million people, has struggled to contain the pandemic. As of Monday, health officials have registered 13,325 cases and 211 deaths.
