Georgia Confirms 1,000 New Coronavirus Cases On The Same Day Governor Lifts Stay At Home Order!


If “ You Should’ve Known Better” was a person it would definitely be Georgia state Governor #BrianKemp , as it has recently been reported that 1,000 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 was reported on the same exact day he decided to lift the stay at home order for residents!

According to the Business Insider, Georgia’s Department of Public Health has recently confirmed a total of 27,023 cases of COVID-19 on Friday as oppose to the 26,000 cases that were noted on Thursday. While highlighting 33 new fatalities bringing the state’s death toll to 1,040.

Reports read that the White House Coronavirus task force advised states to begin reopening slowly once a decline of COVID19 positive cases were confirmed. However Kemp pushed for the state to reopen small businesses despite the escalating rate of cases and worry that officials and residents had expressed upon his decision. From barbershops, nail salons, movie theaters, gyms, therapy centers, restaurants and more.

Gov Kemp defends his decision by stating he ordered businesses to follow safety precautions of, “screening workers for fever and respiratory illness, enhancing workplace sanitation, wearing masks & gloves if appropriate, separating workspaces by six feet, teleworking if possible & implementing staggered shifts.”

Even though Black people have been identified to only make up 32% of Georgia’s population; it has been concluded that they also account for 83% of the COVID19 confirmed cases. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has come forward to state that Kemp’s decision is irresponsible.  “Reopening the state and relaxing social-distancing measures now is irresponsible and could even be deadly. “

She continues, “Our hospitals may not be stretched to capacity, but that does not mean we should work to fill the vacant beds. I strongly believe that our health-care system is not overwhelmed because we have been socially distancing.”
