Democrats are freaking out after one state proved them dead wrong on the coronavirus response
Democrats are doing everything they can to keep the U.S. economy shut down over coronavirus.
They desperately want the economy to tank in order to help them defeat President Trump in November.
But now they are freaking out after one state proved them dead wrong on the coronavirus response.
Democrats truly believe that forcing the economy to a screeching halt will stop coronavirus.
They believe that efforts to re-open the economy will cause millions of people to die from the virus, and that every death is President Trump’s fault.
They are predicting massive amounts of death following a decision from Georgia Governor Brian Kemp to re-open their state’s economy.
The Left painted Kemp as an evil man who cares more about the state’s economy than the lives of its citizens.
Even President Trump had his doubts, stating that he was moving too quickly with his plan to re-open.
But all of those concerns have been proven to be unfounded as the newest numbers relating to the virus were released in the state.
Georgia revealed that they have the lowest number of hospitalized coronavirus cases in more than a month despite having no stay at home order.
“Today marks the lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized statewide (1,203) since hospitals began reporting this data on April 8th,” Governor Brian Kemp Tweeted. “Today also marks the lowest total of ventilators in use (897 with 1,945 available). We will win this fight together!”
Kemp also touted the state’s increase in coronavirus testing, writing in a statement:
“Thanks to Georgia’s partnership with Augusta University, our university system, the private sector, and local public health officials, we’ve doubled our daily testing capacity and now have over 217,000 total tests reported to the state’s website. A few weeks ago, Georgia ranked 43rd out of 54 states and territories in testing per capita. Today, we are 29th according to the COVID-19 Mapping Project. Out of twenty-three states with more than five million people, we are now 12th in per capita testing.”
When Kemp lifted the stay at home order, he had it remain in place for those who are elderly or “medically fragile.”
In making the decision, he touted the necessity of protecting both the lives and livelihoods of those in his state.
“As I have said many times before: We must protect both the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians. There are many people today who literally cannot afford to put food on the table. We must fight for both the public – and economic – health of our state,” he said.
And the numbers prove he made the right decision, regardless of what the mainstream media’s fear-mongering.
