The risks of contracting any illnesses are within seasonal norms, with last reported 251 cases of flu among 100,000 people, and a decreasing trend.


Furthermore, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) the present situation in Georgia is a followed: “current season weekly consultation rates for influenza like Illness (ILI) appear to be similar to rates from previous seasons. When comparing current severe acute respiratory infection (SARI) detection with SARI from the past 4 seasons (2014/15 through 2017/18), the number of influenza positive SARI detections are similar to the number of detections from the last A(H1N1) pdm09 dominated season, 2015/16”
