The C.D.C. director says Michigan needs to shut down, not get extra vaccine, to slow its virus outbreak.
April 14, 2021
Gov. Whitmer recently urged people to voluntarily restrict activities as cases of Big Rona have started to increase in certain areas. The director of the CDC went even further to say that Michigan should “close things down” to help address the country’s worst coronavirus outbreak.
Yup, and this is after governor Whitmer has been advocating for more vaccines for Michigan even after the Federal government stuck with allocating to states according to population.
How bad is the outbreak?
Michigan hospitals on April 12th reported treating about 3,900 adults with confirmed COVID-19 cases, which surpassed a previous peak from Dec. 1 and was close to the state’s record high from last April of roughly 4,000.
Just for perspective, in Michigan, one in every 194 people was diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past week — the highest rate in the U.S. The state’s case rates have been rising since mid-February and hospitalizations have been increasing since early March.
About 41% of Michigan residents ages 16 and up had received at least one shot.
Michigan still has some of the strongest restrictions in the Midwest.
