'Do better': Texans blast Gov. Abbott about COVID 'improvement' tweet

On Sunday, August 30, Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted out a few statistics that left many of his constituents upset.

Abbott pointed to the coronavirus pandemic showing "improvement" in Texas. He stated hospitalizations have declined for the third straight day and are at their lowest since August 22 – one week ago from his tweet.

"The number of Texans testing positive is the lowest since August 9," he added. "More than 56 [percent] of Texans eligible for vaccination are fully vaccinated."

However, according to the Texas Tribune, Texas hospitals reported nearly 14,000 hospitalizations of COVID-19 last week, just below the state's peak after the winter surge. This summer, the hospital admission rate for people younger than 50 has nearly doubled when compared to earlier outbreaks. During the week ending on August 22, about 1,672 people with COVID-19 were admitted each day, the Texas Tribune reports.

1. All you gotta do is pick the stats that look good... while you're looking

at the paper upside down with someone else’s glasses on. Republicans have no shame - grifters all!
