'Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who violate quarantine.' This was stated by the Chairman of the Board of TƏBİB, Ramin Bayramli.

According to him, the increase in the number of cases of infection is due to the fact that the quarantine regime is not strictly observed.

'If our citizens do not comply with the quarantine regime, then we will be forced to ask the government to tighten the quarantine regime. If we wait just 2-3 weeks, we can return to normal life,' he said.

In turn, Spokesman for the Cabinet of Ministers Ibrahim Mammadov also announced violations of the quarantine regime.

'If this goes further, then the quarantine regime will not be lifted on 20 April, but will be even tougher,' he said.
