LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer compared the deprivation ordered in the fight against the cornonavirus to wartime sacrifices.
She took another shot at protesters who flocked to the Capitol to denounce her tough restrictions against work and gatherings.
Whitmer said people didn’t protest during World War II when they suddenly had to build bombers or ration food.
The governor said people need to act like we’re at war.
Meanwhile, the state health department reported a daily rise in new coronavirus cases and COVID-19 deaths, but both were smaller than the new numbers disclosed Sunday.
Victims included a 5-year-old Detroit girl.
