Health authorities in Armenia have reported a record number of daily coronavirus infections and deaths amid a steady growth of cases recorded since the government began easing a nationwide lockdown in mid-April.

The number of coronavirus cases in the country of about 3 million rose by 517 to 10,009 in the past 24 hours, the Armenian Health Ministry said on June 2, just a day after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian announced he and four members of his family had tested positive for the virus.
