Texas is Winning the Coronavirus Battle; Here’s How They’re Doing it!
Texas certainly loves to do things big. They love to be outdoors and having a good time living in their wonderful state. Governor Greg Abbott was reluctant to close his state when COVID-19 was just starting to sweep across the country. But in wisdom and experience, Abbott closed down parts of the state that would have increased the spread of the virus. His actions have led to his state having the least amount of COVID-19 deaths and hospitalizations since April.
The Democrats have taken Abbott through the mud claiming that his policies are not strict enough. And as a result, the people in Texas will suffer at the hand of their governor. They pushed the notion that only a Democrat could make the right decision to protect the people. But, now they are having to eat their words because a Republican has shown the world that his policies were exactly what was needed to lower the curve.
Greg Abbott stated that “Today Texas had the fewest #COVID19 fatalities since the end of March. “We also had the fewest COVID hospitalizations since the middle of April. And, we have the 2nd most recoveries from COVID in America.” It seems that every state that is Republican-run is thriving and they did not see the massive spikes that many of the Democrats were saying was coming. The states that have been the hardest hit have been those that are Democrat-run. They just don’t have good leaders and policies in place. The Democrats are terrible with leadership and protecting people. They rather freak out about everything and overreact to the point of ruining everything that they touch.
The numbers that are reported in Texas are a testament to Republican leadership. President Trump set the example with the way he led the country through the pandemic. Those that followed his leadership have seen low numbers. But those that resisted his leadership and went their way like Cuomo in New York and Newsom in California have seen catastrophic death numbers and people infected.
Abbott is leading the state of Texas into a new frontier that is going to make Texas great. He has followed the same path that President Trump has taken to make America great and restored the American dream. Abbott has restored the greatness of Texas with his wise leadership. No Democrat could have done what he has accomplished for the people of Texas. There were over 54,000 cases of the virus and only recorded 1,506 deaths. These numbers are better than any Democratic state-run.
The liberals are quick to attack Abbott and his success because they hate all Republicans. They point out that the number of tests done includes anti-body tests. They claim that they skew the numbers so there is no reason to trust what has been reported. But what has been reported are facts. The Democrats cannot argue against the facts of low numbers. There are a lot of people in Texas and only 54,000 people were infected. The anti-body tests would have only added to the infected total. But the tests did prove that Abbott’s policies were exactly what was needed to keep Texas safe.
And now Abbott is getting back to living in the state. His policies that he is following are even effective with opening the state back up. Every area of life for a Texan is open. All bars and childcare centers are functioning again. He is soon to let other places of entertainment open up because the Democratic feared the second wave of infections just has not materialized. Abbott is following President Trump’s lead on reopening. Things are open but social distancing must take place for the short term.
Sylvester Turner is the mayor of Houston and he hates the fact that Abbott is successful. He stated “The people in the city of Houston we want things to open up. We want the economy to open up. We want people back on their jobs. I probably would choose a different pace than what he has chosen … My only hope and prayer is that several weeks from now, we are not going to see a spike occur.” He is fearful and that is why the Democrats have failed in every aspect of the COVID-19 pandemic. But the Republicans have successfully protected millions.
