კოვიდკრიზისი ჯანდაცვის სისტემაში
კორონავირუსით ინფიცირების ყოველდღიური მაჩვენებელი საქართველოში უკვე კარგა ხანია, ოთხი ათასს ასცდა. ჯანდაცვის ქართული სისტემა დაავადების ასეთ გავრცელებას სრულიად მოუმზადებელი შეხვდა - ადამიანები ვერ უკავშირდებიან სასწრაფო-სამედიცინო დახმარებას, დაგვიანებით ან საერთოდ ვერ იღებენ ოჯახის ექიმის კონსულტაციას, გადატვირთულია საავადმყოფოები, სადაც ადგილები უკიდურესად მძიმე მდგომარეობაში მყოფი პაციენტებისთვისაც კი აღარ არის. რთულ მდგომარეობაშია სამედიცინო პერსონალიც. პანდემიის დაწყებიდან - 26 თებერვლიდან დღემდე კორონავირუსით საქართველოში 10 ექიმი დაიღუპა და რამდენიმე ასეული დაინფიცირდა. კოვიდსაავადმყოფოებს ახლა მედპერსონალიც აღარ ჰყოფნით.

Violent incident in Akhalubani and mutual accusations during the pre-election campaigns
While until now, the representatives of the opposition parties were claiming to have problems with entering the villages near the occupation line and holding pre-election meetings there, today they faced a problem of ruining the meetings like for instance on October 16, when some local residents broke up the meeting of Levan Tarkhnishvili, the majoritarian candidate of the European Georgia in Gori and Kaspi municipalities, with local population in village Akhalubani.

Thanks to the legal aid provided by HRC, a Citizen shall no longer pay a loan increased by disproportional mount
Some of the commercial banks following the recommendation of the Government offered to postpone the loan payments for three months to the citizens affected by the state of emergency established due to the spread of the coronavirus. Many people took advantage of the offer. However, the grace period applied to the loans by the commercial banks actually turned out to be of no relief for many individuals.  Among the persons concerned is N.K., a resident of Tbilisi. In accordance with the restructuring scheme offered by the Liberty Bank, the total amount of the loan and the loan term of N.K. was increased much more than it was expected. HRC helped N.K. to solve the problem.
