Health Minister of the Republic of Azerbaijan Oqtay Shiraliyev informed the current situation and the planned activities by the government on combating coronavirus in his speech given to the TV program, EDNews reports citing AzVision.

The minister said all those responsible for state structures and ministries in Azerbaijan are engaged in work related to reducing the spread of coronavirus in the country.

"We have enough people working, all the precaution measures are implemented. We also have several plans, including reserve hospitals. However, we're trying to make sure the situation in Azerbaijan won't reach the level of other countries," he said.

The minister stressed that the country wasted no time to tackle the spread of the disease.

"This was a new disease, and it wasn't easy to carry out lab tests," he said, adding that additional testing equipment was brought from Turkey, and those with possible coronavirus infections were taken under control.

Shiraliyev pointed out that Azerbaijan additionally imports medical equipment, and as a result of urgent measures implemented, the situation in the country is stable.

"The world practice shows that the countries that aren't going for urgent measures, are doing much worse. In Azerbaijan, as we see, it is different. The decisions made by the Operational Headquarters must be respected," said the minister.

 

He also said the general public should stay aware and follow up on the measures and decisions made by the Operational Headquarters.
