CM – Texas Governor Greg Abbott has no COVID deaths after reopening early


Texas Governor Greg Abbott, whose controversial plan to reopen early coronavirus was dubbed « Neanderthal thinking » by President Biden, said the state had no daily COVID-19 deaths on Sunday. </ "Today Texas reported: 0 Covid-related deaths – the only time since the data was collected in March 2020," the Republican governor said on Twitter.

« The last, the last, what you need is the Neanderthal man who thinks everything will be fine in the meantime. Take off your mask, « Biden said of the decision, at a time when many American adults were not yet eligible for the vaccination. p> « First, it’s obviously not the v on things the president should say, « Abbott said of Fox & Friends. » « But second, he said it on the worst day he could have because that same day he said the Biden government in Texas was allowing illegal immigrants into our communities with COVID. »
