The government will not appeal to the President to extend the state of emergency after May 22, Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said on Friday.
"After an in-depth analysis of the epidemiological situation, the Georgian government has decided not to appeal to the president and, consequently, to the parliament, to extend the state of emergency after May 22," Gakharia said.
The Prime Minister explained that lifting the state of emergency does not mean that all the imposed restrictions will also be lifted.
“I would like to underline : it does not mean the complete and sudden lifting of all the imposed restrictions. Some restrictions that, according to epidemiologists, are necessary in order to maintain the high level of risk control, must be kept in place," said the Prime Minister.
