Urgent unpopular strict measures must be implemented: Dr Giorgi Pkhakadze
23 November, 2020
Healthcare Advisor to the UN Secretary-General Dr Giorgi Pkhakadze says that Georgia will stabilize the epidemiological situation only if strict measures are taken.
"Urgent unpopular strict measures must be implemented. I assume that the number of COVID-19 patients is higher than the statistical data show," Dr Pkhakadze said.
Georgia recorded 3,958 cases in the past 24 hours to bring the total tally to 108,690. A total of 3,531 patients have recovered, with their number increasing to 89,170.
The country has registered 1,012 deaths (36 recent).
