BREAKING: Georgia governor to order shelter in place to curb coronavirus

Source: Atlanta Journal Constitution

Gov. Brian Kemp on Wednesday said he is preparing a statewide shelter-in-place order across Georgia to try to curb the spread of a coronavirus pandemic that’s sickened thousands and is linked to the deaths of at least 139 residents.

The new rules, which he will issue on Thursday, are set to run from Friday through April 13. He also said he would immediately sign an order that would close K-12 schools through the rest of the academic year. 

He said his decision was triggered by "game-changing” new projections on the disease’s spread in Georgia. He also said he was informed of new data that this virus “is now transmitting before people see signs.”

“Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt that. We didn’t know that until the last 24 hours,” he said.

Really Kemp? You fucking lying idiot!

We've all known for weeks about asymptomatic spread of Covid 19.

1. Lying idiot that he is, the shelter in place order is a good thing.

Yes, too bad it wasn't done weeks ago, but mouth-breathers gotta mouth-breath, and it's better than no action at all.

14. These GOPeer anti-science types

like kemp and desantis apparently can't read a graph, or one of the many other sources of information, documenting exponential growth during unchecked spread. They didn't even pay attention to recent examples in e.g. Italy. They had to wait until seeing it happen in the USA, thereby losing months of preparedness and dooming thousands more of their citizens to perish.

No one that stupid or willfully ignorant should be governing anything.

17. When DeSantis finally did it

he brought a bunch of states along with him - GA, MS and yes even PA, with our infamous "Pennsyltucky", which tried to hold out to the very end until Wolf wielded the final ban hammer after 60 of the 67 counties (including that rural top part of the Pennsyltucky "T" ) had registered positives, and established that no one was immune.




TEXT

Governor Tom Wolf

@GovernorTomWolf

Today I’m ordering all Pennsylvanians to stay at home indefinitely.

I am doing this to avoid an exponential growth in the number of #COVID19 cases across our commonwealth.
Stay at home

and then cuts down the center of the state to the MD border.

5. Glad to see some of these fools finally coming on board. Shame it took so long

I mean shame in the Biblical sense, not in the "oh that's too bad" sense.

Shame on them.

10. I live in GA. Kemp is lying and trying to cover his ass.

I fucking hate KKKemp.

He started out as a builder and real estate developer in Athens, GA. He has always been a GOP tool. Let’s not forget how he stole the gubernatorial election while in office as Secretary of State.

Kemp is a rethug slime ball. We should have had shelter in place much sooner. He is a despicable man.

12. Even though He made the SAH order Statewide, there wered part of Ga. practicing SAH for a few weeks

already. We began on March 20th. All of our restaurants that haven't closed have switched to curb service only...no dining room service at all, and that includes fast food places too.

I think a lot of people have been staying home even without an order. The ones who aren't, other than those who have mandatory jobs, are the people who still think the virus isn't that big of a thing. Becoming infected is a magical cure for that!

16. It suddenly hit him by surprise this week.

Bullshit. He'd have to have been on a climb to the top of Everest or hiking the Appalachian Trail for the past month not to have seen the grass fire sweeping the nation. Now that his pant cuffs are on fire it's time to rake up the dead leaves.

It sounds like he's really going with: "Now that I've studied the problem from all angles...".

The ads to get rid of them, kind of need no help.

Glad I am not a TV viewer any more, it's gonna be nuts!

27. I just saw a replay of him speaking, aired on Morning Joe. ..

He may be a bit slow to catch on, but the guy behind him, interpreting for the deaf, was outstandingly enthusiastic, animated and dancing.

Ok, so now we know that it doesn't take symptoms to spread this. Great breaking news, guv.
