As of May 24, there are 194 active cases of COVID-19 in Georgia out of the 730, as two Austrian citizens have returned to their country soon after they tested positive for the virus back in March. 

Unfortunately, twelve individuals, with underlying chronic disease, have passed away from the coronavirus-related complications. 

The Georgian Foreign Ministry reported yesterday that 12,477 Georgian citizens have been brought back from different coronavirus-hit areas since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak.
