UN Agencies work continues as Coronavirus spreads
- Statement by the United Nations in Georgia
The Government of Georgia is to be commended for taking proactive measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to treat those affected.
The UN agencies, in close consultation with the Government, continue to identify needs and provide support to all the people of Georgia, with a focus on ensuring that the most vulnerable groups are not left behind in this crisis.
We encourage the Government to ensure that accurate information on the outbreak reaches every member of society, including where needed in a format adapted for linguistic minorities and persons with disabilities. Our efforts to combat the COVID-19 virus won't work unless we take great care to protect the most vulnerable people in society.
The UN agencies will continue to fully use all the tools at their disposal to support Georgia in addressing the socio-economic consequences of the crisis to ensure that efforts to achieve the SDGs are not halted.
