Natia Mezvrishvili: We are not going to declare a state of emergency and introduce strict restrictions across the country

According to the head of the government administration, Natia Mezvrishvili, despite the increased number of coronavirus cases, the situation is fully under control and manageable.

As Mezvrishvili stated after the Interagency Council meeting, there is no reason to panic.

"We are not going to declare a state of emergency and introduce strict restrictions across the country - something the entrepreneurs and economic organizations are worried about. Targeted restrictions may be in the regions, and it will naturally depend on the specific epidemiological situation. In order to avoid targeted restrictions, it is very important for every citizen in the regions or cities, to strictly follow the rules. We have repeatedly said that there would be an increase in cases after we eased economic restrictions. Naturally, all that happens is an increase in cases. Once again I urge you to follow the rules, we don't have enough resources to further limit the economy and introduce strict restrictions - we are talking about it openly. The economy can no longer be closed. All this will hurt our citizens. In order for this not to happen, each of us must show high responsibility and wear the face mask only inside the building, but also outside it, where people are close to each other", - Mezvrishvili said.
