We are taking active preventive measures, thus the risk is low. There is no danger for the time being, but it does not mean that the danger is ruled out in the future, too, but we are doing our best to minimize the risk.

The world united in the fighting against coronavirus. We are involved with the World Health Organization in the prevention measures against coronavirus,”, -concluded Ekaterine Tikaradze.
