‘Pro-Life’ Texas Governor Greg Abbott Admits on Private Call That COVID-19 Will Spread With Reopening Businesses

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott admitted during a private phone call on May 1 with state lawmakers that his choice to reopen businesses in Texas will help spread the deadly coronavirus, notes the Daily Beast:

Listen, the fact of the matter is pretty much every scientific and medical report shows that whenever you have a reopening—whether you want to call it a reopening of businesses or of just a reopening of society—in the aftermath of something like this, it actually will lead to an increase and spread. It’s almost ipso facto.

The more that you have people out there, the greater the possibility is for transmission. The goal never has been to get transmission down to zero.

The Quorum Report reports that Gov. Abbott’s public statements have mentioned that Texas may see an increase in coronavirus cases due to more testing, rather than increased contact.
