According to Tengiz Tsertsvadze, the Director-General of Infectious Diseases, AIDS and Clinical Immunology Research Center, if the public does not come to senses and get involved in the vaccination process, the government will have to introduce mandatory vaccination and further restrictions.
In Tsertsvadze's words, winter is ahead, with chances of twindemic increasing.
"You think France, America, Germany, or Italy are less democratic countries than Georgia? All these countries were forced to implement mandatory vaccination. I still think that the public will ward off surrealistic influences and get jabs as well as wear face masks. Otherwise, the government will have to introduce mandatory vaccination, no matter how strong the backlash this decision will cause,'' Tsertsvadze stressed.
