The draft amendments to the state budget of 2021 will be submitted to the parliament soon, the minister said.
In 2022, the Georgian authorities are going to spend 500 million lari on combating the coronavirus pandemic, Georgian Finance Minister Lasha Khutsishvili said, presenting a revised draft of the state budget for 2022.
At the same time, according to the head of the Ministry of Finance, 1.9 billion lari will be allocated for healthcare in 2022.
At the same time, Khutsishvili noted that soon a draft amendment to the state budget of 2021 will be submitted to parliament, according to which spending on the fight against coronavirus will exceed one billion lari. To date, GEL 900 million has been allocated in the state budget for these purposes.
"When more than 1 billion lari is needed to fight the coronavirus this year, the question arises whether 500 million will be enough next year. Of course, there is a risk that this amount will not be enough, but there are two reasons for reducing spending in the future: the purchase of vaccines, for which we spent 150 million lari this year, and the increase in the number of people with immunity," Khutsishvili said.
At the same time, he noted that, considering those who have already been vaccinated and who have been ill and the increase in the rate of vaccination, 65% of the population will have immunity by the end of the year, which will reduce the cost of treatment.
To date, 33.9% of the country's population has been fully vaccinated against coronavirus in Georgia.
