Georgian PM does not rule out tightening the state of emergency throughout country
Prime Minister of Georgia, Giorgi Gakharia, said on Thursday that the government would make a decision on tightening the state of emergency in Lentekhi in accordance with the results of the final tests, InterPressNews reports.
As Gakharia noted, the government is monitoring the situation and may decide to tighten measures not for individual regions but throughout the country.
"We are waiting for the results of the final tests from the Lentekhi cluster. However, it should be noted that the number of regional clusters in the country is growing. This should be taken into account. We should also take into consideration that we may make a decision on tightening the measures in the whole country and not in some regions because we have serious clusters in Kobuleti, Marneuli and Bolnisi, now Lentekhi has appeared, as well as there are several cases in Samegrelo, Batumi. Let's see what the results will be by the end of the day," Giorgi Gakharia said.
