We are idiots – Abkazians Are Not Ready For COVID-19 Outbreak
While Georgia is managing to deal with the spread of COVID-19 and number of foreign experts and media outlets praise the country for that, situation in its occupied regions is dire. It appears, so called local government is not ready for the outbreak and they are not even able to properly test people on the Coronavirus.

It must be noted that the Georgian government has expressed readiness to accept and test anyone coming from the occupied regions.

Abkhazia held so called
presidential elections couple of days ago and Aslan Bzania came out victorious, but it needs a month for a power transition period and this is what makes ordinary Abkhazians the most frightened. How will the outgoing government manage to take control and take measures against the virus?

Abkhazian publicist Tengiz Agrba writes on Facebook page that the so called government is not ready for an outbreak.

“In two weeks, an outbreak of coronavirus is expected in Abkhazia ... if we are not idiots and do not want to lose everyone older than 65 and those who are in poor health ... We are idiots ..... there are no cases so far, we’ll close these couple points on Psou and Engur, until they defeat him in Russia and Georgia and we would be saved” – he said and urged the local government to effectively shut the borders with Russia. “Make this new power now and I give my word that I will be grateful, and I close my eyes to everything that was and will be indulgence, we will start from a new sheet to wait for the wonderful Transformation of those former all who are in power again.”

What is more concerning is that part of local ordinary Abkhazians do not even believe that the Coronavirus has reached the region. One of the locals, Gunda Papaskiri writes on Facebook that there are dozens of people with high temperature, but nobody tests them and medical staff and hospitals are not ready to except them.

“Not even doctors in Abkhazia acknowledge existence of the COVID-19 in Abkhazia” – another Abkhazian Irina Archba says.

Situation is really dire in the region of Abkhazia and when hiding of information is not excluded from the so called government, larger picture of what is happening there could be unavailable.
