Head of Georgia’s National Centre for Disease Control Amiran Gamkrelidze says that people in Georgia have become too calm due to the low infection rate ‘which is not good as the virus still exists.’ 

He urged people to continue sticking to the recommendations, using face masks and social distancing.
