A total of 1,068 residents of the Georgian capital city of Tbilisi took part in a research conducted by Tbilisi Infectious Disease Hospital and 10 residents were found to have coronavirus antibodies, reports Tbilisi Infectious Disease Hospital.

The research was conducted on May 18-27 of 2020.

Earlier, on May 27 head of Tbilisi Infectious Disease Hospital Tengiz Tsertsvadze said that six of 1,000 Tbilisi residents were found to have coronavirus antibodies.

The National Disease Control Centre has been conducting similar research in Telavi, Georgia’s eastern province of Kakheti and in eastern Bolnisi municipality since May 22.

No cases of the coronavirus have been reported in the Kakheti region so far, thus another goal of the study is to determine whether residents of the region have been infected with the virus in recent months but remained below the radar of the healthcare system or were asymptomatic.
