Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control notes, that Georgia must not reach the level, when the healthcare sector will not be able to control the infected patients. Gamkrelidze has declared it at the Facebook press conference.

Amiran Gamkrelidze claims that several scenarios have been prepared, but it must not be necessary to move to Plan "B".

"We should not get to the point, when the health care system finds it difficult to control infected patients. It is the primary duty of the medical community and the health care system to meet all challenges prepared, but there are no unlimited resources, including in the healthcare sector.

We have several scenarios, but now we see that the healthcare system is dealing with about 2,000 new cases a day, so I think we are not going to get to the level where Plan B will be needed. Healthcare sector must withstand this great challenge,” said Amiran Gamkrelidze.

What is Plan "B" the head of the NCDC did not specify.
