Georgian health officials say that Georgia is between the containment and the spread of China-born COVID-19 virus, a respiratory infection which has infected 34 in Georgia since February 26, 2020.
Head of Georgia’s Hospital of Infectious Diseases Tenzig Tsertsvadze says as of now the ‘trace has not been lost’ and all the infected know how they contracted the virus.
We have managed to contain the virus so far. However, now we are on the verge of the virus spreading,” Tsertsvadze said.
One of the 34 infected individuals, who was the first who tested positive for the virus in February, has already been discharged.
The condition of all other infected patients, including minors, is stable.
1,008 in the country are under quarantine and 64 others are at hospitals.
Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia stated that the Georgian health system is ready to cope with the challenges posed by the virus.
