The European Scientist has written an article about the most resistant countries to the new coronavirus pandemic, mentioning Georgia as one of them.
The article says that the Georgian government is one of the few which “has been able to anticipate the crisis better than others, taking restrictive but necessary measures, which have turned out to be beneficial for their country.”
Georgia limited travel as early as January 28, long before other European countries, notes the European Scientist. Then the article mentions other steps Georgia made including the cancellation of major sporting and cultural events, closure of ski resorts, restaurants and bars and mentions that these steps were taken when just a very few people were infected.
The European Scientist notes that Georgia has launched an economic rescue plan which includes tax deferrals, loans guaranteed by the government and VAT refunds.
