Although Georgia lifted some of the restrictions within the state of emergency as the rate of coronavirus infection is currently decreasing in the country, in order to preserve the ‘positive trend’ health officials calls on citizens to:
- Wash hands frequently
- Avoid public gatherings
- Maintain social distancing
- Use face masks in closed spaces
However, 93 citizens have violated the state of emergency regulations during the last 24 hours throughout the country.
Meanwhile, State Minister for Reconciliation and Civic Equality of Georgia Ketevan Tsikhelashvili recently stated that the number of individuals infected with the coronavirus is increasing in Russian-occupied regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali.
