The new coronavirus (COVID-19) poses more threats to the world every day. The death toll has already reached 2 701. Coronavirus cases were also detected  in the countries close to Georgia, so the Center for Disease Control speaks about  the high readiness mode.

 A few days ago, Russia banned the import of meat and meat products from China to avoid the spread of coronavirus and African swine fever, including factory-packed products. Apart from that, sanitary workers were ordered not  to allow bringing  even a small volume of meat products that passengers will have as hand luggage into the country.

It’s  worth mentioning  that meat is the largest import group among the agricultural and food products from China to Georgia in 2019 . "Commersant" got interested  whether Georgia considers import of meat products from China a threat and whether it plans to ban it. As the Media Holding has found, at this stage our country bans only imports of live animals from the People's Republic of China, meat and other meat products are still imported into the country. The official response from the Revenue Service is as follows:

 “To prevent the spread of a new type of coronavirus (2019-nCoV) on the territory of Georgia from the People's Republic of China, there is a high risk for human life and health, in particular; as well as to protect the lives and health of the population, it is temporarily prohibited:


Import, re-export and transit of live animals from the People's Republic of China.

Restrictions don’t apply to imports  of meat and meat products.

We would like to inform that imported meat is subjected to laboratory analysis in Georgia.

If necessary, other additional control measures will also be carried out  in agreement with the National Food Agency.
