New South Wales is the largest city in Australia with 5 million residents they just recorded their third death of 2021 from covid and they've had a total of 916 deaths. Georgia has approx. 10 million residents. If we followed Australia's lead, we would have lost 1800 loved ones, instead we have lost 10 times that number. Great job Kemp.
