“If ever there was evidence that the media is overreacting and causing unnecessary mass panic amongst the public, it can be seen in Georgia. The state’s governor has called in 2,000 national guard troops to “assist” with 99 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
The complete loss of freedom and the decimation of the economy are the real problems here, not the actual virus. While it’s true that this virus spreads rapidly, and it is new, so little is known about it, the sheer panic is astronomical and that’s a much bigger concern right now. Governor Brian Kemp hasn’t helped calm his constituents either. He has issued an executive order to call up as many as 2,000 Georgia National Guard troops to State Active Duty to address coronavirus concerns. But it’s only going to panic people further and cause more economic disruptions.”
