Irish low-cost airline Ryanair is reducing the number of flights from Georgia to several destinations in Italy following the request of the airports of Georgia in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus in Georgia, announces the Ryanair.

Milan-Tbilisi flights will be performed until March 7, while from March 8 to April 7 the flight frequency will be decreased to two flights.

As for Bologna-Kutaisi flights, they will be cancelled from March 8 to April 7.

Coronavirus in Georgia has mostly been detected in passengers who have travelled in Italy recently. 

Yesterday five people tested positive for the new coronavirus COVID-19 in Georgia increasing the total number of people infected in the country to nine. 

Head of the Georgian National Centre for Disease Control Amiran Gamkrelidze said all of the five people travelled together to Italy and returned to Georgia on Sunday.
