In total, 59 cases of measles were recorded in Armenia, health minister Anahit Avanesyan told reporters Thursday.

"The measles cases are not local. There are cases both in [capital] Yerevan and in the provinces. Today we have 59 cases. Most of the people [infected with measles] have already been discharged [from hospital] or did not need hospitalization. Only a few people are continuing their treatment [in hospitals] at the moment. Fortunately, their condition is improving," said the health minister, commenting on the information that measles cases were recorded in Armavir, too.
