Brain Kemp’s total disregard for the lives of Georgians has been on full display this week as he continues to reject any efforts to combat COVID-19 and admits he’s not even keeping track of infection rates.
After issuing an executive order last week barring local governments from taking steps to blunt COVID-19 spread, this week he revealed that rather than enact measures to mitigate the spread of the virus, he’s simply going to be “keeping my fingers crossed.” And in Athens yesterday, a day after Georgia recorded one of its highest daily COVID-19 case counts ever, Kemp admitted he hadn’t been keeping tabs on the spiking daily case rates, saying, “That’s kind of surprising.”
“As more unvaccinated Georgians become infected and lose their lives to COVID-19, Brian Kemp has all but given up on trying to stop the spread of the virus. Crossing your fingers and hoping for the best is not how you govern a state through a once-in-a-generation pandemic,” said Rebecca Galanti, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Kemp is so out of touch with the crisis Georgia is facing right now that he can’t even bother to keep up with the case numbers. Our state deserves a leader more concerned with saving Georgians’ lives than their upcoming election, and Brian Kemp has proven time and again that he is not that leader.”
