ABC News has just finished a study of 21 states that opened up in early May and found that none of them have any major increases in hospitalizations, deaths, or the percentage of people testing positive:
“JUST IN: ABC looked at 21 states that eased restrictions May 4 or earlier & found no major increase in hospitalizations, deaths or % of people testing positive in any of them. [SC, MT, GA, MS, SD, AR, CO, ID, IA, ND, OK, TN, TX, UT, WY, KS, FL, IN, MO, NE, OH]”
Both Florida and Georgia are among those states and, after all the grief their governors have gotten for opening up at the beginning of the month, it’s awesome to see them on the list.
In fact unless I’m wrong, they’re almost all red states.
I couldn’t find any more on this study, but if I do I’ll pass it on to you.
