The Ministry of Health confirmed to Civil.ge on 9 November that they no longer plan to publish monthly COVID-19 statistics.
The Ministry explained, however, that data on COVID-19 infection rates will still be collected by the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC) and that interested parties can access them upon request.
“Recently, there has been a downward trend of the coronavirus in the country and the epidemic situation is stable. Taking into account the above, there is no longer any need to publish COVID statistics,” the Ministry noted in its decision.
The NCDC’s last COVID-19 update was for September when authorities reported 35,719 new cases of COVID-19, 43,189 recoveries, and 20 fatalities.
At the time, Georgia (excluding the occupied regions of Abkhazia and Tskhinvali/South Ossetia) had reported 1,797,225 cases of COVID-19 in total, among them 1,776,548 recoveries and 16,920 deaths.
