Azerbaijan records decrease in COVID-19 infection rate - TABIB

The decrease in the number of infected people in Azerbaijan is not associated with a decrease in the number of tests - there should be no doubt about that, said Head of the Department of Prevention and Control of Diseases of the Management Union of Medical Territorial Units (TABIB) Yagut Garayeva at a coronavirus press briefing of the Operational Headquarters under the Azerbaijani Cabinet of Ministers.

She said that there are currently 9,700 active patients in the country.

“The number of COVID-19 infections in the country has decreased and the number of people recovered has increased, and the difference between them is 3-4 times. It is very important for us. The toughened quarantine has led to a decrease in hospital bed fund,” Garayeva noted.

“The COVID-19 infection rate in the country has decreased to 5 percent. This is the result of tougher quarantine regimes and more responsible compliance with the rules by citizens,” she added.
