Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who has been extremely vocal against Gov. Kemp’s decision regarding the lifting of some of the restrictions that allowed certain businesses to open, took to Twitter to cite a Forbes article that stated that The Risk Of Exposure To COVID-19 In Georgia Has Increased By More Than 40% Since The State Reopened For Business.
Charlie Gile, who is a producer at NBC News, posted this clip on his Twitter account showing the scene at the Greenbriar Mall Atlanta this past Saturday at a Jimmy Jazz store.
Data shows daily incidence rates in Georgia from April 26 through May 2. The “risk of exposure to COVID-19 increased every day during this time period. From April 21 (two days before businesses in Georgia began to reopen) to May 2, IR in Georgia increased from 180.7 to 256.8, an increase of 42%.”
