"Situation is challenging, though everything is manageable and similar to the times before August, when all of us together managed to strike a balance together with our citizens, medical doctors and police in essence in the best possible manner between economic interests of the country and human health, we should return to those indicators," said Prime Minister of Georgia at a press briefing following a meeting of the Inter-Agency Coordination Council held today at the Government Administration.
 
As clarified by Giorgi Gakharia, the Government of Georgia always chose to strike a balance between the management of the pandemic and economic sustainability, which later grew into an adaptation and this policy or strategy is effectively pursued further.
 
“We had a meeting of the Coordination Council today, which considered the current epidemic and economic situation in the country. We have been working for over a week on the design of certain measures, which I wish to elaborate today. Though, before I list them specifically, I need to say that the situation is not easy at all. It is challenging, though remains manageable and similar to the times before August, when all of us together managed to strike a balance together with our citizens, medical doctors and police in essence in the best possible manner between economic interests of the country and human health, we should return to those indicators.
 
You may well be aware that a record-high community transfer rate has been witnessed globally, especially concentrating in Europe. All of us need to understand it well that when I speak of striking a balance, our choice in the management of the pandemic has always been an equilibrium with economic  sustainability, which later grew into an adaptation and this policy or strategy is effectively pursued further,” - he stated.
