Michigan governor and vocal Donald Trump critic Gretchen Whitmer wants to shut the whole thing down.
Whitmer “is calling for a two-week suspension of in-person high school classes and all youth sports,” according to new reports.
Breibart News reports that Whitmer is calling for “a voluntary suspension of in-school classes, youth sports, and indoor dining in response to a surge in new coronavirus cases.”
“We have to do this together. Lives depend on it, ” said Whitmer. “We’re going to have some tough weeks ahead. So I’m asking everyone — please, take this seriously.”
Whitmer’s lack of leadership has led the state to an increased surge in cases. So her response is to double down on her current tactics.
“As of Thursday, Michigan had the worst rate of new Covid-19 cases in the U.S. over the previous two weeks,” reports NBC. “Related hospitalizations had more than quadrupled in a month and were 90 percent of the statewide peak from a year ago, leading some hospitals to postpone non-emergency surgeries. The seven-day average of new daily deaths has been rising for two weeks.”
