At a meeting of the Interdepartmental Coordination Council, Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia spoke about the epidemiological situation in Kazbegi and emphasizes that the rumors about the Government intending to enforce restrictions there are groundless. The epidemiological situation in Kazbegi and the Larsi checkpoint is fully under control, the Prime Minister said.
According to the Head of Government, 54,205 international freight drivers have been tested so far, of which 788 have tested positive for the virus.
“Since we started testing international freight drivers, 54,205 people have been tested, of which 788 have tested positive for the virus. Some may think that these numbers are insignificant, but even one person entering the country without control may have triggered devastating consequences. These directions must be controlled with extra care and caution.
In addition, you know that we have several infected Interior Ministry employees previously serving at the Larsi checkpoint. Now various media outlets are spreading rumors about the Government intending to enforce restrictions in Kazbegi but, in reality, there are no risks in Kazbegi or the Larsi checkpoint-the epidemiological situation is fully under control. So, these are just rumors, and nobody plans to enforce any restrictions in Kazbegi,” Giorgi Gakharia said.
