(BizPac Review) Despite early warnings from Dr. Anthony Fauci and nonstop fear-mongering from the establishment press, Georgia’s grand reopening appears to be a success, with the southern state now reporting the lowest number of hospitalized coronavirus patients and ventilator usage since it began tracking them in early April.
“Today marks the lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized statewide (1,203) since hospitals began reporting this data on April 8th. Today also marks the lowest total of ventilators in use (897 with 1,945 available),” oft-maligned Georgia Gov. Georgia Kemp, a Republican, announced Saturday.
These results stand in stark contrast to what Fauci had predicted prior to the state’s grand reopening in late April.
“[I]f I were advising the governor, I would tell him that he should be careful and I would advise him not to just turn the switch on and go, because there is a danger of a rebound,” he said during an April 22nd briefing when pressed about Georgia’s then-impending reopening.
“And I know there’s that desire to move ahead quickly. That’s a natural human nature desire, but going ahead and leapfrogging into phases where you should not be, I would advise him as a health official and as a physician not to do that.”
These results stand in even starker contrast to the continued dishonest fear-mongering from the left-wing establishment press, which has sought to literally portray the Georgia governor as a veritable murderer intent on human sacrifice.
“Georgia’s Experiment in Human Sacrifice,” an alarm headline from The Atlantic reads.
“Public-health officials broadly agree that reopening businesses—especially those that require close physical contact—in places where the virus has already spread will kill people,” the piece itself reads.
But those public-health experts appear to have been wrong.
