Vincible, but inexcusible

Georgia’s governor proves that his ignorance is not invincible, but it’s still inexcusible:

While announcing a statewide shelter-in-place order on Wednesday, Georgia governor Brian Kemp, a Republican, said that he had just been informed that asymptomatic individuals could spread the coronavirus.

The illness is now transmitting before people see signs….Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt [symptoms],” Kemp said at a press conference. We didn’t know that until the last 24 hours.”

We Didn’t Know That Until the Last 24 Hours’ (emphasis added for those with really short attention spans)

Does Georgia have a recall mechanism?
