The State of Georgia was lambasted by left-wingers for its “dangerous” re-opening of its economy, but now the state has reported its lowest number of virus cases since the crisis began, despite re-opening the economy.
Two weeks ago, Republican Gov. Brian Kemp began lifting the restrictions on businesses in the Peach State. As soon as he did, the radical left began attacking him and accusing him of having “blood on his hands.”
But now, Kemp is having the last laugh because his state has just recorded its lowest number of coronavirus cases since the crisis began.
Kemp jumped to Twitter to celebrate.
“Today marks the lowest number of COVID-19 positive patients currently hospitalized statewide (1,203) since hospitals began reporting this data on April 8th,” Kemp wrote. “Today also marks the lowest total of ventilators in use (897 with 1,945 available). We will win this fight together!”

Kemp’s early lifting of the coronavirus lockdowns drew attacks from all over the spectrum. In fact, even Donald Trump took shots at Kemp for his policy.
CNN even (wrongly) predicted that Georgia’s coronavirus cases would DOUBLE by August.
Nearly every other “news” outlet had similar stories raking Kemp over the coals.
Georgians still seem a bit frightened to resume life as normal and some have noted that businesses have not exactly come roaring back yet.
But Georgia has a jump on this, and it looks like the predictions of doom and gloom were wrong.
