PRESUMABLY ON POLITICAL GROUNDS
Following confirmation of Covid-19, Vazha Kovzadze, a supporter of For Georgia party, closed his shop. Next day his mother, who had no contact with Vazha Kovzadze , opened the shop, but soon the patrol police requested her to close the shop due to the infection of the owner.
According to the head of the HQ of For Georgia party Vladimer Vardzieli, the patrol police did not explain how long the shop should be closed and what procedures should be carried out. After studying the mandatory procedures on their own and disinfecting the facility, it became possible to open the store three days later, which, according to the owner, caused quite a lot of material damage to the family. Vladimer Vardzieli links the incident to the discrimination of their supporters and points out that the City Hall building was not disinfected when one of the Mayor’s Office employees was confirmed to have the virus. According to ISFED, one of the City Hall employees was indeed confirmed to have the virus and the City Hall building was not disinfected. A City Hall employee noted that although disinfection was not carried out, the room of the infected person was closed.
