20 000 citizens per day will be able to get tested at the expense of the State - Giorgi Gakharia

The Prime Minister discussed the schedule of intensive testing that will reach 20,000 tests a day in the nearest future.

“We announced a specific plan of precision-targeted restrictions valid for two months, which should stabilize the community transfer rate. At the same time, we are announcing a new schedule of intensive testing, which was launched yesterday and will reach 20 000 tests a day in the nearest future.

It is a parallel process, which should facilitate a quick detection of viral spread. Citizens of Georgia will have an opportunity to get tested at the expense of the State as 20 000 tests will be administered a day. It is on top of what the private sector will do. These steps have a specific goal to make this 2-month-long plan of restrictions most effective, leading to a greater efficiency of detection and ultimate isolation or medical care of the affected individuals, so that we all continue living a full life from early February, upon the completion of these two months”, - said Giorgi Gakharia.
