DETROIT (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is defending the extension of the state’s stay-at-home order as the “best weapon to defeat” the coronavirus in a newspaper opinion piece.

Her comments Sunday come as the state reported an additional 41 deaths, for a total of 3,315 in the state.

State officials say the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases is more than 37,700, including an additional 575 reported Sunday.

Berrien County reported 215 cases with 14 deaths. Cass County reported 26 cases with 2 deaths.

Whitmer also signed an order to protect consumers and extended another order relaxing medical practice laws to allow physician assistants and nurses to treat COVID-19 patients.
