Mississippi Churches, Stores Reopen As Governor Overrides Mayors' COVID-19 Orders


Alabama and Miss. Governors share the same denial of virus danger.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has shrugged off the idea of a shelter in place and/or emergency declaration about the virus. Says doesn't want to hurt the economy.

Exact words: ""We are not California. We are not New York. We are not even Louisiana."

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves signed an executive order Tuesday that effectively overruled cities who shuttered non-essential businesses amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Reeves, a Republican, signed an order that labels businesses such as gun stores, department stores and real estate offices as both "essential" and "critical."

He said: "Mississippi's never going to be China," "Mississippi's never going to be North Korea."

It’s one of the most urgent questions in the United States right now: How many people have actually been tested for the coronavirus?

This number would give a sense of how widespread the disease is, and how forceful a response to it the United States is mustering. But for days, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has refused to publish such a count, despite public anxiety and criticism from Congress. On Monday, Stephen Hahn, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, estimated that “by the end of this week, close to a million tests will be able to be performed” in the United States. On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence promised that “roughly 1.5 million tests” would be available this week.

But the number of tests performed across the country has fallen far short of those projections, despite extraordinarily high demand, The Atlantic has found.
