The State of Michigan is now the single worst hotspot in the USA for new CoVID infections despite the Democratic Governors brutal shutdown orders for months during the pandemic.
“At the same time that Michigan hit the grim milestone, the state is the national leader in the number of cases of the novel coronavirus by population. As of Tuesday morning, Michigan is averaging more than 452 cases per 100,000 residents over the last seven days, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data,” reports Fox News.
“Despite Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s onerous lockdown policies and draconian shutdown orders, Michigan is still leading the nation in new COVID-19 cases,” Ted Goodman, communications director for the Michigan Republican Party, told Fox News.
“From the start of this pandemic, Whitmer has been more focused on the political science rather than the actual science, which is why Michigan is seeing an increase, compared to most of the country, where numbers are falling,” Goodman added.
“Gretchen Whitmer is asleep at the wheel while COVID-19 rages on in Michigan,” Republican Governors Association spokesperson Chris Gustafson said in a statement. “Whether it’s cutting hush money checks, instituting deadly Andrew Cuomo-inspired nursing home policies, or hiding from her constituents, Michiganders deserve better leadership than Gretchen Whitmer.”
