In Photos: Coronavirus Lockdown in Tbilisi

On March 21, Georgia declared a nationwide state of emergency effective until April 21. A week later, on March 30, stringent lockdown measures were introduced to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus as the country had already registered cases of internal COVID-19 transmission.

Since March 31, Georgians are required to observe curfew between 21:00 and 06:00. The new restrictions also include banning gathering of more than three persons in public except for essential stores; persons aged 70 and above are required to stay indoors (exceptions apply for visiting nearby shops/pharmacies/hospitals); public transportation was fully halted.
