ATLANTA – Today, following the news that America has surpassed 200,000 deaths to COVID-19, Democratic Party of Georgia Nikema Williams released the following statement:
“Our country is grieving for the needless loss of 200,000 lives, after this president downplayed the dangers of COVID-19 virus and our government refused to stop the spread. This pandemic didn’t have to be this bad — Trump’s failed leadership made it worse, and now, Republicans’ campaign to end American healthcare as we know it will put us all in even greater danger.
As we enter into our seventh month of dealing with this virus, and as Georgia surges past 300,000 COVID cases, it is crucial that we elect leaders who will take this crisis seriously, listen to scientists, and are strong enough to take the necessary actions that will save lives. We need to elect Joe Biden, Jon Ossoff, and Democrats across Georgia who will take this crisis seriously so we can get back to work safely, and protect our healthcare.”
