Former Food and Drug Administration commissioner Scott Gottlieb on Sunday said the state of Georgia is “jumping the gun” by reopening some business sectors too soon during the coronavirus outbreak there.

In an interview on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Gottlieb said Georgia is still seeing increases in COVID-19 cases.

“Georgia is certainly not out of the woods,” he said. “The slope up was a rapid slope… the slope down is going to be a far more gradual…. It’s going to take some time… before opening up the country.”

“Georgia is certainly jumping the gun here,” he added.

Gottlieb also lamented the removal of vaccine expert Rick Bright to place him at the National Institutes of Health.

Afterward, Bright and his lawyers released a statement that he would soon file a whistleblower complaint against the Department of Health and Human Services.

“I was sorry to see him go...changing leadership in that position right now certainly is going to set us back,” Gottlieb said.
