Atlanta Mayor Admits ‘It’s Not as Bad as I Thought that It Would Be’ After Reopening

‘So I am pleased about that’


BOTTOMS: "Well, what I can say, Brian, is it’s not as bad as I thought that it would be, so I am pleased about that. But I still think it’s too soon to say. The reason being, whereas initially we were seeing increases between deaths and people testing positive, rising anywhere from 25 to 30% over a seven-day period, right now we’re somewhere between 12 and 15%. So it’s better than it was, but it's still not great. We’ve still not seen that 14-day decline, as recommended by the CDC, so we’re not quite there where I can say that we are out of the woods, because we are not. Because what we know, as we reopen this state, we’ll also see whether or not this impacts our number of people who are testing positive."
