According to Tsertsvadze, many are wondering if the seasonal viruses that exist in the country are more dangerous than the coronavirus, which means that the coronavirus is very well managed.
According to him, the good situation in Georgia in terms of combating the coronavirus pandemic has given rise to an opinion among the population that it is over, but the pandemic has not yet ended and is not ending.
“The very good situation in Georgia with the covid pandemic has given rise to a certain misconception among the population that the coronavirus pandemic has ended or is ending, but it is not! It has not yet completely ended in Georgia, there are still 100 to 500 cases daily and very few, but still there are deaths.
But this is not the case in the world, 300-400 thousand cases and 1000-1500 deaths are recorded daily. The intensity has dropped sharply, the peak has been passed, recently the intensity has been stable, but the end is not yet in sight, but on the contrary, against the background of a general decline in a number of countries, there is an increase in the EU, in America and especially in Japan. There were 60,000 new cases in Japan yesterday. What kind of completion can we talk about when there were 60,000 cases in the most successful covid-management country,” Tengiz Tsertsvadze said.
As Tengiz Tsertsvadze said in the program, two new strains of coronavirus are circulating in the world, which will become dominant in the future, although they have not yet been recorded in Georgia.
At the same time, according to Tengiz Tsertsvadze, since January, the so-called “union” will begin to arrive in Georgia. bivalent vaccines that practically provide protection against covid.
“The daily vaccination rate is very low, 100-200-300 per day. This should be corrected. Moreover, since January, bivalent vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are likely to arrive, acting both on the old strains and on the Omicron strain, and these vaccines practically provide protection against covid, if not by 100%, then by a very high percentage.” – said Tengiz Tsertsvadze.
