In the next 2 weeks, we will have an increase in mortality rate - Amiran Gamkrelidze

The death toll will increase in the next two weeks. Such a statement made todaythe Head of the National Center for Disease Control.

“We will have an increase in mortality over the next two weeks because quite a large number are in critical condition. About 400 patients are on artificial respiration. Everything is done to save their lives, but unfortunately, we have an increase in mortality, because usually the mortality rate changes 2-3 weeks after the cases of infection are detected.

At the same time, we analyzed the data of the last week and it is an important trend. The positivity decreased from 28 to 20%. The rate of positivity is declining, which is a sign that there has been a certain downward trend in the rate of infection. These are the first signs and this is conditioned by the restrictions imposed at the end of November. The 7-day incidence rate shows that we crossed the peak and the number of new cases has already begun to decline. These are the first signs and there is no reason to calm down”, - said Amiran Gamkrelidze.
