Whitmer says Michigan has reached a new peak in COVID-19 cases

Michigan’s governor says her state’s coronavirus numbers “are not good,” and that things can change quickly.

Governor Whitmer said Wednesday that she’s sounding the alarm now so parts of the state won’t have to be shut down again in the future. She notes there’s been a steady rise in COVID-19 cases in Michigan since a state supreme court decision struck down her recent executive order.

Whitmer says Michigan is now at it’s peak in new daily cases, higher than even April’s numbers. She adds that with flu season starting, people will have to be extra vigilant to stay healthy.

Michigan’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Joneigh Khaldun said that a month ago the average number of deaths from the coronavirus per day was 9, and now it’s 15.

It is astounding how the politically driven panicdemic grows as we approach election day. These politicians don’t realize the people are woke to their schemes. Both in Michigan and Indiana The People see through their lies. It was reported that the cornyvirus beds in Elkhart are almost full. Yet the reporting never says that the total cornyvirus beds is 7 beds. All through this panic the media has FAILED to tell us the whole story. Not a single report is comprehensive leaving out vital information that contradicts the premise of the story. They only tell the story they want us to hear that lines up with their agenda. SHAM SHAME SHAME!! Perhaps on November 4th, the truth can finally be told by the media.

By the way, cornyvirus is a virus. it will have to run its course no matter how much distance we keep or how many masquerades we suffer through.

The Supreme Court decision has nothing to do with it. Cases were rising before the Supreme Court decision, which wasn’t supposed to take effect immediately anyway. Even though the Supreme Court took away some of her powers, the Department of Health immediately issued their emergency order which basically reiterates the last executive orders. Nothing really changed. Always looking to blame someone else.
