Ships Entering Georgia have to Submit Heath Declaration due to Coronavirus Outbreak

All ships entering ports are required to comply with international health care rules, Georgian Maritime Transport Agency said.

Reportedly, ships will have to submit a maritime health declaration within 24 hours. Furthermore, if during past three weeks the ship and its passengers were in countries at risk, they will have to go through thermal scanning.

To date, three cases of coronavirus infection have been recorded in Georgia. All infected are Georgian citizens who have recently arrived from abroad. The Parliament of Georgia has joined the fight against the spread of the new coronavirus. For this purpose, special dispensers with disinfectants are installed at the entrances to the building and at the places of reception of citizens.
