Tengiz Tsertsvadze, the director-general of the NCDC, said that the control of increasing coronavirus cases is hard without lockdown.
In Tsertsvadze's words, we are faced with two options: either to refuse to enforce lockdown and the already applied measures and face increased coronavirus cases, or enforce lockdown and ease the monitoring of the situation. According to Tsertsvadze, if the government opts for the first alternative, it must assume the responsibility of controlling increasing cases without inflicting harm upon the public and keeping the low mortality rate.
Georgia recorded 1,872 cases in the past 24 hours to bring the total tally to 30,303. The number of recovered citizens stands at 11,370 after 603 patients have beaten the virus. The death toll is now 215, with 14 dying recently.
