Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia said eight months after coronavirus outbreak was declared, there is nothing new in the world in fight against the virus.
As PM noted, wearing a face mask, observing social distancing rules and avoiding unnecessary social gatherings are still important.
“When we say that we are in the stage of adaptation and management, first of all, we must follow these rules. I would like to emphasize once again that no one should think the resources of the healthcare system are inexhaustible. The healthcare system resources can be depleted and this is the biggest risk.
In a bid to have the similar success that we had during the first wave of coronavirus, these three components must work together – the citizen, the state and the institutions. All three components should have the appropriate responsibilities.
The global number of coronavirus cases will increase, but this does not mean we reintroduce restrictions. There is no such need. We are managing the virus and we will do so. We need to think to do it even more effectively,” stressed the Prime Minister of Georgia.
Georgia has reported 578 new cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) today, bringing the total number of infected people to 8 696.
375 patients recovered from the virus in the past 24 hours, increasing the total number of cured persons to 4 619.
Two more patients died of coronavirus in Georgia. The virus-related death toll stands at 52.
