NCDC head Amiran Gamkrelidze called upon the public to follow regulations, which have become more lenient after the government opted for a more balanced approach. ''The public awareness must rise. Everybody must realize that wearing a face mask and avoiding large public gatherings are mandatory. I can show you the photos of people arranging large weddings and funerals. Do not play with fire,'' Gamkrelidze said.
