As Sputnik reports, the governor of the Tavush province Hayk Chobanyan confirmed this information.

According to him, the man is a truck driver, who entered Armenia through the Bagratashen checkpoint. Since he had a temperature, he was immediately isolated.

The total number of infected people is now 5. Three new cases are connected with the first two: that is, those who had direct contact.
