The Minister of Health, Ekaterine Tikaradze, does not specify what it costs to manage one covid-patient. As the Minister explains, each patient's treatment is individual, and there is no specific amount. Tikaradze says that the state budget covers the costs of treating covid patients.
 
Bm.ge reminded Ekaterine Tikaradze of the report, which was to be submitted to the agency in September, on how the country was preparing to fight the coronavirus and what the expenses were, to which the Minister replied: "I remember that the presentation was held, but it. wasn't detailed enough as it seems, and you missed it."
 
As for the expenses already incurred by the state in the fight against covid-19, Tikaradze says that these expenses are ongoing and are not being summarized yet.
 
"As for the expenses, the work on the budget is going on, and when it is approved, you will know how much money will be spent," said the Minister of Health.
