Restrictions Extended Till February 1 in Georgia

The opening of the economy has been delayed, point restrictions, as the government calls it, have been extended until 1 February.

The decision has already been made by the Coordinating Council.

The economy minister said that as a result of the efforts, there is some stabilization in the country regarding virus infection.

"This is a great achievement. However, the number of infections is still high," Natia Turnava said.

She cited Europe as an example, noting that there are some signs of a third wave and some European countries are tightening their measures even further.

"We have decided to maintain the current regime until February 1 and use the time left until now to communicate with business and prepare for a safer opening from February 1," the minister said.
