Georgia has plans to supply Armenia with additional medical personnel in the fight against the coronavirus, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated earlier today. 

There is a quite tense situation in our neighbouring country in terms of the coronavirus. I have daily contact with the Armenian PM, as well as our health, economic and foreign ministers. We have already identified what kind of support Armenia needs most at the moment. The Georgian Health Ministry has already been instructed regarding the medical personnel,” Gakharia said.
