Giorgi Gakharia: There will be no more strict restrictions or closure in the country
According to Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia, despite the fact that the number of people infected with coronavirus is increasing daily, there will be no more strict restrictions or closure in the country. As he explained at today's meeting of the government, the main priority now is to achieve rapid recovery of the country's economy, InterPressNews reports.
"Recently, we have a clearly increasing tendency in the number of infections, however, the situation is fully under control and, most importantly, it is manageable. We have always said that with lifting the restrictions, including economic restrictions, the number of infected people would increase, as elsewhere, all over the world. Therefore, we have always said that the main task is to adapt to the virus and to learn to coexist with it. I would also like to emphasize that at the first stage, the strict measures, restrictions and state of emergency were aimed at saving the lives of dozens of our citizens, because there was no knowledge about the virus at that time.
Today, not only in Georgia, but all over the world, knowledge about the virus is much greater, which allows us to continue living normally, despite the increasing figures," - said Gakharia.
According to the Prime Minister, the main task of the government today is to recover economy as quickly as possible and to protect the health of citizens.
