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.
