Shut Down Again — CDC to MI

Governor Gretchen Whitmer addresses the state as Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun right listens Michigan officials pleading for additional vaccines as COVID-19 cases surge

Faced with the country's highest rate of new coronavirus infections, Whitmer on Friday urged a two-week suspension of in-person high school classes, all youth sports and indoor restaurant dining.

"As our nation's top health experts have said, this is not a failure of policy, but rather a compliance, variant and mobility issue, which is why it's important for us to ramp up vaccinations as quickly as possible", he said.

Speaking on "Face the Nation", Whitmer said the White House should reconsider, pointing out that even though MI has some of the harshest COVID restrictions in the country, cases are continuing to rise. "While Gov. Whitmer appreciates the help we have received from the federal government, she will not stop fighting to get more vaccines for the people of MI".

The CDC has reported more than 19,550 B.1.1.7 cases, according to the latest tally updated on Thursday.

"We are seeing a surge in MI despite the fact that we have some of the strongest policies in place: mask mandates, capacity limits, working from home", Whitmer stated. We've asked our state for a two week pause.

Walensky said that when states are faced with "an acute situation, an extraordinary number of cases like we have in MI - the answer is not necessarily to give vaccine".

Walensky said the best way to address the situation in MI is to "close things down", the way much of the United States did early in the pandemic one year ago.

According to Dr. Walensky, Michigan, now experiencing the worst surge in the nation, needs to close up.

About 41% of MI residents ages 16 and up had received at least one shot.

WHITMER: I don't think there's a governor in the country that's leaving any vaccines on the table. Florida has reported almost 3,500 cases, which is the highest total in the country, followed by MI with more than 2,200 cases. We got over a million shots in arms just in the last two weeks. "So we have really been rolling", said Whitmer.

Additionally, the Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association called Whitmer misguided and said her recommendations are not rooted in "proof or reliable data".

Throughout the past year, we've learned more about SARS-CoV-2 than we'd ever hoped to. "I watch the numbers every day and I'm hypersensitive to what direction the state is going and what we need to do next". It's in everyone's best interest. It is also sending more diagnostic testing and setting up more testing sites.
