FARS* - For­eign Min­istry is­sued travel ad­vi­sory on Satur­day, warn­ing na­tion­als of the re­cent out­break of swine flu in Ge­or­gia.

A no­tice pub­lished on For­eign Min­istry’s por­tal to­day reads, “Re­gard­ing the re­cent out­break of swine flu in Ge­or­gia, it is ad­vised that Ira­nian cit­i­zens re­frain from trav­el­ing to the coun­try, un­less it is ab­so­lutely nec­es­sary.”

Since the end of last year, the flu virus, mainly iden­ti­fied as the H1N1 type, has been spread­ing quickly across Ge­or­gia. The virus has so far claimed 15 lives in Ge­or­gia.

Given the cur­rent se­vere sit­u­a­tion across the coun­try, stud­ies at Ge­or­gia’s pub­lic schools and kinder­gartens have been post­poned un­til Jan. 21.
