Amiran Gamkrelidze, Head of National Center for Diseases Control and Public Health claims that the epidemiological situation in Georgia is manageable and under control.
According to Gamkrelidze, opening of air space is an increased risk, though passengers returned from abroad are subjected to control.
“We have several cases of infections every day and the new cases are mainly connected to incoming passengers and are truck drivers. There are some regular flights appointed, Georgians are returning. However, quarantine and self-isolation mechanisms are still functioning,” Gamkrelidze said.
Head of National Center for Diseases Control said that the air movement is opened for the so-called ‘safe green countries’ where epidemiological situation is under control. The passengers have to follow certain guidelines set in the country. They are transferred to quarantine zones or self-isolation.
