Head of Georgia’s National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) Amiran Gamkrelidze says that he was against the provision of the individuals who recovered from coronavirus with termless Covid green passports. He says that the governmental council, which is composed of 25 representatives from different fields, have made the decision with the majority of votes.
“We will observe the situation and the decision may be reviewed,” Gamkrelidze said. Covid green passports will come into play in Georgia starting December 1.
The passports will be available for fully vaccinated individuals, those who have recovered from coronavirus, those with negative PCR test certificates conducted within the last 72 hour and individuals with negative rapid test results conducted within the last 24 hours.
