At today's briefing Sandro Kvitashvili, the Minister of Healthcare of Georgia, the country's on the verge of swine flu epidemic.


"There's no epidemic so far, but we're on the verge," he said.

At the same time, he mentioned that all medical structures are ready and "all doctors know what to do," - Interfax.

Previously the similar statement made Shota Tsanava, the deputy head of the National Centre for Disease Control.

"We are on the verge of an epidemic, which cannot be considered as some threat, as in December a flu epidemic is registered annually," he said - Trend.

At the same time, he highlighted that flu is dangerous with its consequences, and the task of doctors and citizens - be vigilant and prevent them.

"There's no need to close schools, kindergartens and other organisations," he underlined.

Over 1000 Georgians are infected with swine flu, the the Centre director, Paata Imnadze stated. About 300 cases are confirmed in laboratories.

According to the official data, all cases of swine flu took relatively slight form, all the patients recover. Whereas many doctors believe the authorities conceal the true situation and say lethal cases were caused by other diseases, like meningitis. Several weeks ago that point of view was voiced by Tina Topuria, the head of Centre for Homeopathy.
