Reminder: The first case of coronavirus infection was registered in Wuhan in December 2019. The virus was spread in the proximity of Wuhan’s seafood open market, one of the biggest and most crowded places. The Chinese government did not inform the population about the risks until late December. Moreover, they reported the fact to the World Health Organization only on December 31. Experts say that the number of fatalities by that time exceeded 1000, which was much more than it was reported.
The first coronavirus infection case in Georgia was registered on February 26. By that time, Europe and America were already gripped by the epidemic.
