"Of course, from today’s perspective of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and the risks, it is extremely important to have a modern, well-functioning infectious disease clinic in the country", said Gakharia.

He added that the clinic has been operating in a dilapidated building for decades and the government needs to solve this problem as soon as possible.

Gakharia said that the money will be spent to build a new hospital or purchase a new building.
