Intensive testing program will be implemented throughout Georgia from today till February 1, 2021, announced Berdia Sichinava, Deputy Head of the Task Force under the Interagency Coordination on COVID-19.

Sichinava stressed that the Government will conduct about 20,000 tests per day, along with the private laboratories and clinics.

“The wide use of rapid antigen tests, that shows results in 20 minutes, will kick off aiming at quickly detecting infection. This will help to put people with mild symptoms or asymptomatic ones into self-isolation and those who have severe symptoms at COVID-Hotels or under medical observation, ” stated Sichinava.
