De facto leaderships of two Georgian occupied regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali (South Ossetia) have decided to close the so-called border with the rest of Georgia to “avoid the spread of H1NI,” the flu which has claimed 15 lives in Georgia.
Only those having the “passport of Abkhazia” and people who are employed in the Enguri power station are allowed to enter the Abkhazia region.
The same decision has been made today by another occupied region Tskhinvali, and announced that the "border will be temporarily closed from 8 pm today."
Georgian health officials say that there is no risk of epidemic in the country.
The government of Georgia has also made the anti-flu medicine Tamiflu free of charge for all Georgian citizens who will need it.
