Coronavirus: Five Reasons Greg Abbott Will Save Texas From The Plague
Greg Abbott Saves Texas From Corona virus Pandemic
Abbott's Faith First Reason
There are five reasons Gov. Greg Abbott will save the state of Texas from corona virus. First, is his faith. He said recently at Prestonwood Baptist Church, "When I was just 26 years old, I suffered an injury that broke my back, fractured my vertebrae and my spinal cord leaving me paralyzed and forever using a wheelchair. When you face something like that, it tests your faith...wondering why God would allow something like this to happen."
He further said, "But more importantly in the aftermath of that, as I continued to reach out to God, I found God reached right back out to me. My relationship with God and AAJeseus Christ grew even closer aft the accident and it empowered me to go on and become the governor of the great state of Texas."
Prayers Are Being Answered
Abbott further said during an interview with the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in North Dallas. "We are all tested, we are all challenged. There is a solution that will support you and will always be there for you and that's Jesus Christ, it's God Almighty. If you lean on Jesus and God, you'll be taken care of, you'll be able to weather this storm. God never promises a life free of storms. What God promises was a pathway through those storms. That's what I've see in my whole life and that's what I'm seeing in Texas."
Reason Two Is Reduced Interaction
Abbott further said, "The growth of the corona virus in Texas is slowing by people staying at home and by people reducing their interaction with others......we are bending the curve and that is putting Texas into a position where we are going to open up in safe ways to prevent the transmission of the corona virus."
He also said, "God's hand is working through the scientists across this great nation by coming up with fast innovative drugs that will lead to therapeutic remedies that people will be able to take and eventually immunizations that will get us beyond this episode in our lives."
"Put your faith in God. God will bring you through this and Texas will once again rise up to be the number one economy in the United States of America," Abbott concluded.
Reason Three Is Louisiana Border Protection
Reason three why the governor will save Texas from the corona virus is the quarantine he instituted at the state's eastern border with Louisiana. When the pandemic exploded in New Orleans in the wake of the Mardi Gras festivities, the number of corona virus cases increased dramatically in that city. It also spread to other locations in Louisiana.
The possibility the virus would sweep like a prairie fire into Texas was very real at the time. Abbott's quick action in ordering all traveler's from Louisiana into Texas be quarantined for fourteen days may have saved Texas from the tragedy that befell Louisiana.
Reason Four: The New York Quarantine
Gov. Abbott's decision to quarantine all travelers from New York City into Texas via airplanes also saved the state. Abbott recently stated, "Texas will not have as many deaths from the entire pandemic as New York had in a day." That promise is held true largely because the governor had Texas Department of Public Safety troopers meet travelers disembarking from New York at Texas airports. The travelers had to fill out forms whereby officers could trace them and verify whether they were complying with the quarantine.
Reason Five:Measured Plan To Re-Open Texas
Abbott has announced a measured plan to re-open the Texas economy, which was first in the United States before the pandemic. He has resisted the temptation to rush into an immedidate opening of all busineesses which c ould lead to a ssecond wave of the Pandemic.
Included in that plan is the expansion of medical care services for the sick beginning this week. He said, "We've expanded he types of surgical procedures and medical diagnosis that can take place next week to make sure hat those who really need access to healthcare aand special treatment will bbe ble to get that."
Three executive orders Abbott issued will begin the process this week of re-opening Texas. One of these orders allows a "retail to go" plan which will include all retail items like foord, services, and goods. Abbott explained, "Many people have used this to order food from a restaurant...you can't go inside but you can either pick it up to go or deliver it to your home. We've been able to do that while containing the corona virus so our thought process is to do that for all retail."
Abbott Further Explains Re-Opening Plans
Gov. Abbott further said, "First we must put the health, safety, and lives foremost and protect your health. Second, we want to begin he process of advancing your livelihoods. People have been going without paychecks, without money to pay rent...our food banks are overflowing with people who deesperately need food. That is a clar signal that the livelihoods of too many Texans have been compromised. We need to get those people back to work and earning a paycheck."
Jack Graham Praises Governor's Actions
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood, praised Abbott following the online interview, saying, "It is so very important that we have the support. I don't know how you prepare for a crisis like this...you are leading us through a crisis like we've never seen before."
President Donald Trump Praises Gov. Abbott
President Donald Trump continued praising Trump during yesterday's press conference. "Gov. Greg Abbott is doing a great job. He's a great governor."
