The head of the National Center for Disease Control, Amiran Gamkrelidze, says those who had contact with people with coronavirus should self-isolate.

Gamkrelidze added that those persons should be tested every 48 hours, only one test is not enough.

“The test result may be negative the next day after contact with infected person. This happaned many times. Testing should be performed every 48-72 hours. With just one test, there is no guarantee that the virus will not be detected on the third, fourth and fifth days,” stated Gamkrelidze.
