According to the Minister of Health, Ekaterine Tikaradze, 3,500 beds are mobilized in the country at this stage, which means that the Georgian healthcare system will be able to receive hundreds of infected people in a day.

"The readiness of clinics is checked on a daily basis. All doctors and nurses are mobilized and fully equipped. We have 3,500 beds mobilized at this stage, which means that we will be able to receive hundreds of patients in a day for a month. At the same time, as we provide intensive training of family doctors, we can additionally place patients in the quarantine zones, who do not need to be hospitalized and they will be treated under the supervision of doctors in the quarantine zones. So we can treat a total of about 10,000 patients in a month,” said Ekaterine Tikaradze.
