According to Tengiz Tsertsvadze, the Director-General of the Infectious Diseases, AIDS and Clinical Immunology Research Center, he does not expect that the "Green Passport" introduction will make a turning point in the epidemic.
As Tsertsvadze told reporters, the Coordinating Council made a mistake when it permanently granted "green status" to the citizens cured of the coronavirus. He expressed hope that the decision would change.
"Those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months should be given a "green passport," as in other countries. Georgia will have two covid passports, one for foreigners, where the health condition of the last six months will be considered, and the other, for domestic use, where all those recovered will be considered. This does not seem right, and I hope they will change the decision," Tsertsvadze said.
