The United Nations has provided Georgia with one million USD to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic.
According to the UN Office to Georgia reports, Georgia was included in the list of the first 46 countries to use the UN Trust Fund's funds to respond to COVID-19.
Georgia should protect the most vulnerable groups from the social and economic shocks caused by the pandemic.
"The main goal is to save the lives of our citizens, stop the virus, overcome the COVID-19-caused economic consequences, and a sustainable and irreversible economic recovery. We appreciate the support from our international partners," Natia Mezvrishvili, head of the Georgian government administration, said.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres founded the abovementioned fund on March 31, 2020.
The fund aims to help countries overcome the health crisis and the social-economic consequences of the pandemic.
