Deputy Minister of Health Tamar Gabunia said studies will continue in the format they are currently in, noting that schools are well prepared to lead the process. She added the Omicron in children presents as mostly mild.
Amiran Gamkrelidze, head of the National Center for Disease Control also agrees teaching at schools should not stop. He noted the percentage of infections and that the share has not increased in either students or teachers.
“I agree that education should not be stopped. These two years of experience have shown us that in addition to health damage, in addition to economic damage, it has caused enormous damage to our children, especially their education,” Gamkrelidze said.
