Euractiv Describes Georgia's Efforts Against COVID-19 as "Furious"
An independent pan-European media network EURACTIV publishes a post about Georgia's efforts in combating COVID-19. The author of the posts writes about the measures taken in Georgia to combat the coronavirus outbreak.

“It’s something maybe to do with a great cohort of health professionals and good habits of resilience in times of trouble,” wrote Thomas de W
aal, a senior researcher at Carnegie Europe think tank, complementing the country’s response.




The article also quotes Lika Chipashvili, a researcher at GEOCASE, who has told the Euradio that the virus is spreading very slowly in Georgia compared to other countries.
“It is estimated that Georgia has gained two weeks compared to other European countries in order to slow down the transmission of the virus as much as possible.”

The author also talks about the measures taken since the first case was reported in Georgia.

Georgia has canceled flights to China as early as January and introduced strict airport checks for travelers from countries with a high risk of coronavirus.

Day nurseries stopped working on 2 March and schools and universities were closed until 1 April.

However, the closure of public spaces such as malls came relatively late, Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia announced the closure of shops on 19 March. Only groceries, pharmacies, gas stations, post offices, and banks were allowed to remain open.

After shutting its borders, on 20 March, Georgia set up mandatory quarantine zones at the border crossing, placing citizens arriving home under quarantine.

On 21 March, the parliament approved a state of emergency.





From March 24 government spokesperson Irakli Chikovani announced that all forms of intercity transport, including rail, would be suspended.

On Monday (23 March), the authorities placed the entire municipalities of Marneuli and Bolnisi numbering 158,000 people under quarantine after discovering that a diagnosed elderly woman had come in contact with more than 80 people when attending a religious event.
