According to Georgian Deputy Health Minister Tamar Gabunia, on Sept. 25, municipal transport restrictions will go into effect in the Batumi municipality, and intercity transport restrictions will become effective on Sept. 26.
"Restrictions will enable us to reduce traffic flow by 15-20 percent. These restrictions are not strict and will only promote stability in the region. By doing so, we will prevent people from gathering and attending different entertaining events since they are conducive to the virus's spread. The restrictions are expected to last for two weeks, for the coronavirus has a cycle of two weeks; however, our final decision will be dependent on the existing epidemiological situation," Tamar Gabunia said.
