816 cases of Omicron have been laboratory confirmed in Georgia, the National Center for Disease Control confirmed.
Medical experts, including Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the NCDC, say that in reality, the number of cases is much higher. “We have to multiply this number by 3-4 to get the ‘evaluation rate.’ The prevalence of Omicron is actually 3-4 times higher, as not all the cases are studied and confirmed in laboratories.”
At the same time, in the last 24 hours, 2953 new cases of coronavirus infection were registered in Georgia and 31 patients died.
