YEREVAN, AUGUST 4, ARMENPRESS. The special COVID-19 department at the Dilijan Medical Center in the eponymous Armenian town is no longer needed as the outbreak is weakening and numbers of active cases are dropping, the hospital said in a statement.

The COVID-19 department at the Dilijan Medical Center has been shut down since August 1.
