Georgia has received $15,000 worth of locally-produced disposable medical gowns and coverall suits, as well as IR thermometers from the US Embassy’s Office of Defence Cooperation (ODC) to help the country manage the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ODC, which is a long-time partner of the Georgian Interior Ministry, is supporting it in a number of areas, including in emergency preparedness and response, as well as enhancing the capability of the Georgian Coast Guard.
We thank all of Georgia’s medical professionals who are working tirelessly to keep people healthy and safe during #COVID19. We delivered these roses to hospitals in Zugdidi and Rukhi, where doctors and nurses are treating cases of the virus. @usingeo @USAIDEurope @NCDCGeorgia pic.twitter.com/cmJANQ2xr2
