The government of Georgia has created a website - www.stopcov.ge - to inform the public about the coronavirus and provide information about the measures taken by the government to prevent thr spread of the coronavirus across the country.

The new website will also give recommendations from the World Health Organisation and the Georgian Ministry of Health.

Information on the page is updated daily at specific times and shows figures for the international spread of the coronavirus as well as answers to frequently asked questions about the disease.

The government of Georgia has already taken several measures to prevent a spread of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

Public schools have been closed in the country until March 16 as a measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Officials say that this time will be enough to strengthen disinfection work at schools, as well as kindergartens and public transport.

Also, trucks transiting through Georgia from coronavirus-affected countries will be escorted to border checkpoints. The drivers from WHO-designated high coronavirus risk countries will be replaced with persons outside the risk groups.

Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze said today that 54 underpasses had already been cleaned with special disinfectant sprays. He also said that preventive measures are being carried out in the service centres of Tbilisi City Hall.

So far three individuals have tested positive for COVID-19 in Georgia.
