According to the Deputy Minister of Health, Tamar Gabunia, despite the increase in the number of new cases of coronavirus, Georgia retains the status of a "green country".
"Globally, countries are compared with each other by the average number of new cases and the number of tests. The average global incidence rate per 100,000 population is currently around 19. Countries below 19 are considered to be low risk countries and those above 19 are considered high risk countries. As of today, the 14-day incidence rate is 5.5, which is conventionally estimated as a dark green zone (less than 10 per 100,000 population). The 4-level traffic light that we now use for domestic purposes is to plan how many tests should be conducted at which level of the incident, where is the virus significantly active, and how many beds should be mobilized for the number of cases that are detected in the country. Georgia still maintains the status of a low-risk country,", - stressed Gabunia.
