Amiran Gamkrelidze, director of the National Center for Disease Control, says that Georgia had made too hurried a decision to lift the restrictions regarding coronavirus.
“We rushed to lift the restrictions. We, the medical side, are more radical on the council than the economic side. It is also clear that the country’s economy needed some freedom in order for development to happen, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. Therefore, we evaluated all the proposals and tried to find the golden mean. I agree with you that the lifting of restrictions came too soon in a number of directions,” Gamkrelidze said.
