According to Paata Imnadze, Deputy Head of the National Center for Disease Control, about 90% of current cold diseases are coronavirus. He said this while talking about seasonal diseases on TV Pirveli.

"Nowadays, about 90% of all colds and flu-like illnesses are coronaviruses, and in only one or two cases there are other viruses," said the deputy head of the NCDC.

Paata Imnadze named 2 reasons for the delay in the spread of the flu virus and noted that now is the season when the spread of flu-like diseases happens.
 
"The flu virus has not appeared yet. Many factors contribute to this. According to various estimates, 55% -60% of citizens use the mask correctly; However, according to current data, about 170,000 people should be vaccinated against the flu virus through the state free program, and 50,000 people in the private sector. So many people in our country have never been vaccinated against the flu.
 
All this has led to the fact that the flu is not here yet, however, very few flu-like viruses are circulating, that is, mainly if someone has a cold symptom, it is the coronavirus, ”Imnadze explained.
