The Prime Minister of Georgia has instructed state representatives in the regions to ensure strict control over the enforcement of restrictions introduced due to the epidemiological situation.
During the videoconference, Giorgi Gakharia said that the recently adopted tougher restrictions seek to slow down the epidemic’s spread, and that enforcement is key to their effectiveness. The Prime Minister urged the state representative governors to assist relevant agencies in monitoring the enforcement of applicable restrictions, and to ensure strict monitoring over social distancing and facemask use in municipalities where restrictions do not apply to retail outlets.
The Head of the Government also discussed the epidemiological situation in the regions. The Head of Government was briefed on the engagement of additional clinics in the process of COVID management based on the increase of infection cases in each particular region, also on needs-based measures to mobilize COVID hotels in municipalities. The Prime Minister urged the state representatives to be maximally supportive of the process of reducing hospital sector overload and to engage in measures seeking to prevent a possible shortage of in-patient hospital beds.
In order to remain updated on the epidemiological situation in the regions and to ensure raid response to challenges in the process of COVID management, Giorgi Gakharia continues regular meetings with state representative governors.
