  Number of coronavirus infected people growing in Azerbaijan

The number of people infected with coronavirus has begun to grow since mid-April, Chairman of Board of Azerbaijan’s State Agency for Compulsory Medical Insurance Zaur Aliyev said.

Aliyev made the remark at a briefing of the Operational Headquarters under the Cabinet of Ministers, AzVision.az reports on May 6.

“The number of infected people increased even more from April 27 through May 3,” the chairman added. “The number of infected people increased as a result of softening of the quarantine regime.”

"Earlier people preferred wearing medical masks but presently, citizens do not use masks and do not observe the rules of the social distance,” the chairman added. “Earlier it was possible to see that 4-5 out of 10 people were wearing masks, presently, it is only one or two."
