Georgian President Salome Zurabishvili requires mandatory vaccination for risk groups.
''I urge the government to introduce rapid and strict measures such as mandatory vaccination in risk groups, the introduction of COVID passports, their mandatoriness to enter public areas, and paid treatment for unvaccinated citizens.
I urge media outlets to cover the issue more frequently. I call upon the civil sector to become more active and parties to exercise restraint.
The patriarchate has a great responsibility; however, it still leaves some religious leaders the opportunity to preach anti-vax propaganda. I once again urge the patriarchate to set the example for its parish,'' she declared.
Georgia recorded 6,024 coronavirus cases and 49 deaths in the past 24 hours.
