With that, I’ll take some questions.
[Blaine Alexander:] Thank you so much. Blaine Alexander with NBC news. Sir, you questioned about the decision to reopen. You mentioned President Trump twice last week, the President criticized the decision, said it was too soon, as have a number of governors or mayors across the state. And the state doesn’t meet The White House threshold for a recommended two week decline in cases.
[Brian Kemp:] Was that a question or an opinion?
[Blaine Alexander:] Nope, that’s a question. I am…
[Brian Kemp:] Well, you just made a statement. You didn’t ask the question. What’s your question?
[Blaine Alexander:] Getting to the questions right now, sir.
[Brian Kemp:] Okay.
[Blaine Alexander:] Thank you so much. For those who say that the move came prematurely, that this came too soon, can you tell us specifically what data you used to determine that this was the safest choice?
Well, I know it may be hard for NBC news to understand this, but all the data is publicly available on the Public Health Department’s website. As I’ve said before, I made those decisions in conjunction with Dr. Toomey and many, many other people following the data and there’s a lot of data that we’re following. I mentioned a lot of it today about our ramp up and testing we’re doing, about our hospital bed capacity.
That you know, just today, I got a text from a hospital CEO in the Metro Atlanta area. They have 11 hospitals. They have 171 COVID patients to date in 11 hospitals. That is down from 260 positive cases, which was their high. That was back on March the 31st.
So – you know, we’re moving forward with data and information and decisions from the local public health officials, meeting and working within the guidelines of the great plan that the president has laid out, and you’re seeing many other governors do that as well.
And I just want to tell you, I appreciate what the president’s doing. He said it best today. The media wants to continue to divide us, during this period. But let me assure you there will be no dividing.
We’re going to continue to work with administration and the president and the vice president and the task force. And he said today, I wish the media could just see how good these calls go with the governors, about what they’re talking about doing with testing, about how three weeks ago everybody’s having a fit over ventilators and now nobody even brings it up.
