“Despite the increase in the number of coronavirus cases over the past week, Georgia still remains in the green zone,” said the head of the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC) Amiran Gamkrelidze after the meeting of the Coordination Council on COVID-19.

Gamkrelidze noted that coronavirus testing rate has expanded in the country.

“We have an increase in COVID-19 cases in the past 4-5 days, so we must curb the spread of the infection rate.

The testing rate has been expanded in the country. We conducted 4,665 tests in August, 7,961 in September, but the average rate since September 4 is 8,259,” added Gamkrelidze.

Georgia has reported 165 new cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) today, bringing the total number of infected people to 2 392, according to stopcov.ge.

The number of recovered patients stands at 1 369.
