"The number of infected people increased dramatically in Bolnisi, there are many cases of infection among doctors," Sozar Subari, the Advisor to the Prime Minister of Georgia on Regional Development, stated. According to him, the town of Bolnisi and the village of Rachisubani got closed today, and mass thermal screening and testing of the population will take place.
There are 47 people infected in Bolnisi.
"Marneuli and Bolnisi got declared as a strict quarantine zone, with small outbreaks appearing there, so we decided to ban contact with other settlements in the municipality.
Today we decided that the town of Bolnisi and the village of Rachisubani will be separated from the rest of the municipality.
The medical staff has the infection, and as they deal with many people, naturally, we see the danger there, whether the virus spread among more significant numbers of the population or not.
There are a total of 5 checkpoints in this area. We reduced the traffic as much as possible," Sozar Subari said.
