Stacey Abrams blasted the decision by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp to reopen the state's economy amid the coronavirus pandemic, calling it "dangerously incompetent."

Democrat Abrams, who lost to Kemp in a closely-watched 2018 gubernatorial contest, tweeted her opposition after Kemp announced the rollback of social-distancing measures to revive the economy.

"Georgia: 14th highest infection/7th lowest testing rate; less econ resilient & 1000s of low-wage workers already forced to risk their lives to make a living," Abrams posted.

"Weakened healthcare w/closed rural hospitals, no Medicaid expansion & a doctor shortage. Reopen?

"Dangerously incompetent."

Republicans Kemp and Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee announced they would allow individual businesses to reopen to boost a fractured economy.

As of Friday, businesses like gyms and hair salons will be able to resume trading, while restaurants can resume dine-in service on April 27.

"By taking this measured action, we will get Georgians back to work safely, without undermining the progress we all have made in this battle against COVID-19," Kemp said.

"Today's announcement is a small step forward and should be treated as such."

According to the state's Department of Public Health, Georgia has had 19,399 COVID-19 cases, including 775 deaths.

Meanwhile, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman (D) slammed the shutdown of "nonessential" businesses, demanding that "we must reopen" now.

Mayor Goodman, a Democrat, blasted the coronavirus crisis measures as "total insanity."

Goodman argues that shutting businesses down is "total insanity."

"This shutdown has become one of total insanity, in my opinion, for there is no backup of data as to why we are shut down from the start,” Goodman raged during a city council meeting.

Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been accused of holding small businesses “hostage" over the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

As small businesses continue to be crushed by the coronavirus, Pelosi has stood in the way of recovery.
