According to the government administration, Giorgi Gakharia held a working meeting with the members of the Coordination Council due to the record high number of new cases of coronavirus in the country in the past 24 hours.

The challenges in terms of epidemiological situation and effective measures to prevent the spread of the virus were discussed at the meeting. It was noted that the increase in cases of virus infection is a global trend and Georgia is no exception, but it is important that the process be managed to minimize damage to the health of the population and the country's economy.

Council members stressed that despite the increase in cases of infection, the government is fully in control of the situation in terms of the spread of the virus in the country.

At the same time, the focus was once again directed on tightening control over the implementation of the recommendations by the Ministry of Health and specialists.

The Interagency Coordinating Council once again urges citizens to avoid overcrowded gatherings, to maintain social distance as much as possible, and to wear a face mask indoors as well as on public transport.

According to current data, a total of 1729 laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus infection have been detected in Georgia, out of which 1321 people have recovered. 41 Georgian citizens have been transferred to Georgia for treatment from abroad. 19 people died. At this stage, 5882 people are in quarantine, and 390 individuals are in the hospital under supervision.
