The EU-funded ‘COVID-19 Armenia High Frequency Survey’ was conducted in September 2020 by the World Bank and UNICEF Armenia, looking at the impact of COVID-19 on household welfare in Armenia and the government response.
The survey results point to a high correlation between job and income loss and food insecurity and mental wellbeing. A total of 241,442 people, or 18 per cent of working-age people who had jobs before COVID-19,lost them due to the pandemic. The largest share of these is among unregistered and female workers.
The report also shows that children are the hidden victims of the pandemic with school-age children in rural areas, especially in Aragatsotn, Armavir, Gegharkunik, Tavush, and Syunik, facing lower connectivity. Also, 15 per cent of households have delayed or skipped routine immunisation as a result of the pandemic.
