Not So Peachy
Fox News reported that Monday evening Gov. Brian Kemp confirmed that two Georgia residents have tested positive for the coronavirus.
“Our team has been working around the clock to prepare for any scenario. Already, state health officials have established contact with these individuals to gather more information, monitor their condition, and determine any exposure,” said Gov. Kemp.
The Governors Word
“They are confident that our efforts to prepare for this moment have enabled us to manage these cases appropriately and minimize any risks moving forward. We remain in constant communication with our partners at all levels of government, and we will continue to update members of the public as information becomes available.” Governor Brian Kemp stated.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has positively confirmed that two persons in Georgia are host to the virus. Both people live in the same house. One recently returned from a trip to Italy.
Italy is the country with the third-highest number of positive cases, as well as deaths, in the world surpassed only by China and South Korea.
Health officials say, in addition to everyday health precautions, it is important to get a flu shot right now to prevent a weakening of the immune system and to help doctors rule it out when making a diagnosis.
