Studies to be launched to determine number of COVID-19 survivors in

Tengiz Tsertsvadze, Director General of Infectious Diseases, AIDS and Clinical Immunology Research Center, says that worldwide, actual numbers of COVID-19 survivors substantially exceed those registered.

In Tsertsvadze's words, randomly selected citizens will be tested for coronavirus antibodies, with test results showing the precise number of people in Georgia having beaten the novel virus.

According to Tsertsvadze, the test results will reveal, in addition to 272 thousand former coronavirus patients, how many people have recovered from the virus.

"When we say that around 60-65% must be vaccinated, we cannot say precisely, but we imply that by this time, 15-20% will have beaten the virus, with these percentage added to the previous 60-65%, and we will have 80% immunity. This is already enough to defeat the pandemic. Some separate cases will still be confirmed, but we will already beat them easily," Tsertsvadze declared.
