Camp pushes on the mask and prolongs the emergency state of the coronavirus



On Monday, Governor Brian Kemp extended the state’s public health emergency, certain commercial restrictions, and his in-situ asylum order for medically vulnerable people because of a surge in new coronavirus cases.

The governor also announced on Monday that he will perform statewide tours before the weekend of July 4 to encourage Georgians to wear masks, but he said he does not intend to require residents to do so.

Georgia set a record last week, recording more than 11,000 coronavirus cases, which was the result of an expansion of orders and a media sensation in Kemp masks. The State Department of Public Health reported 2207 new cases of coronavirus on Monday, nearly matching the 2225 cases recorded on a single day on Sunday.

Georgia set a daily record for three consecutive days before Monday.

Public health emergencies have now been extended to August 1

1, granting the city of Camp a comprehensive sweeping power to impose new restrictions and take other actions to stop the spread of the virus. The housing order for medically vulnerable people and residents of long-term care facilities originally scheduled to expire on Wednesday was extended by two weeks to July 15.

Another worrying sign of an increase in cases is that Camp has extended the coronavirus limits for businesses and restaurants that were due to expire on Wednesday for two weeks. This is a breakthrough in a series of commands that have steadily relaxed regulations.

The order also requires the State Board of Education to draft rules to guide local officials planning to reopen public schools.

Kemp will travel to Albany, Augusta, Columbus, Dalton, Savannah and Valdosta before the holiday weekend to “encourage citizens to listen to public health advice and wear masks” to stop the spread of the disease .

Kemp said: “Wear masks, isolate from society, wash your hands, and continue to follow the guidance of public health officials,” said Kemp, who wears masks in public and on social media.

Public health experts welcome Camp’s efforts to promote masks to mitigate the spread of the virus. But critics of Kemp’s coronavirus response said the governor’s move was not positive enough.

Dr. Harry J. Heiman, associate clinical professor at the Georgia State University School of Public Health, said: “Although the pandemic is advancing in our state, he continues to sit on his hands without taking meaningful action.” “I’m very happy that the governor will continue the campaign to encourage the wearing of masks. This is very important. However, only in the absence of meaningful policy actions, reversing this pandemic trend in the state will not help.”

The surge in COVID-19 cases in Georgia reflects the increase in the number of cases of the disease in many parts of the United States, especially in the south and west, as states have relaxed restrictions.

Georgia has been one of the more aggressive states to reopen the economy since the end of April. At that time, restaurants were allowed to resume dining services, and if safety guidelines were followed, personal care businesses such as nail salons and barber shops were reopened.

Since then, Kemp has terminated the temporary asylum order for all residents except “Medical Vulnerable” Georgians, allowing them to hold larger parties, and allowing bars, nightclubs and live entertainment venues to follow one Guests are welcome again under the circumstances specified in the series.

Kemp said he did not intend to impose any new restrictions on the disease, and his office noted on Monday that the detection of the disease has grown steadily, with a case fatality rate of 3.6%, the lowest level since mid-April. The method of marking him is effective.

Although the detection rate has increased since the virus initially peaked in April, the recent positive detection rate has also increased, which is a sign of increased transmission.

The state also reported a sharp increase in COVID-19’s current hospitalization in recent weeks. On Monday, there are currently 1,359 inpatients, up from 783 on June 7. Death is also a lagging indicator of the virus.

Adults under the age of 30 are the leaders of new cases of the virus, but health experts warn that the virus can easily spread to older and more vulnerable people.

Wearing masks has been politicized, especially for those on the right.

But Kemp is one of a growing number of Republican officials who ask residents not to cover their faces, even if President Donald Trump refuses to wear a mask in public, and Joe Biden, who mocks the Democratic presidential nomination, also uses a mask .

Members of the panel include Vice President Mike Pence, who encouraged Americans to wear masks when visiting Texas on the weekend, and U.S. Representative Liz Cheney, who posted on Twitter Take a photo of her father’s former vice president Dick Cheney and wear the hashtag ## realmenwearmasks. “

Medical experts have reached a consensus that masks are essential for fighting viruses.

“There is ample evidence that wearing a mask can reduce potential contact and transmission, especially between asymptomatic carriers and vulnerable populations and where social alienation cannot be maintained,” Phillip, vice president and chief medical officer of the department Dr. Coule said. Augusta University Health System.

Kemp also announced that state government officials will distribute more than 3 million masks to local government officials and schools.

When asked if masks were needed, Kemp said that mandating masks was an “overbridge” and expressed concern that there was insufficient public support to make statewide orders.

“Some people just don’t want to wear masks. I’m sensitive to this from the political environment because people will participate and create other problems in it,” he said recently. “But this is definitely a good idea.”

The State Capitol also did not require lawmakers, lobbyists and Georgia patrol officers to wear masks, although the Georgia House of Representatives requires legislators to wear masks during the two-week restart of the legislative session that ends on Friday.
