More Than 400 Michiganders Have Succumbed to COVID-19

A chilling new number as the fight to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the state of Michigan continues.  The State announced today that 10,791 positive cases have been identified, and 417 people have died of Coronavirus.

Shiawassee County now has 17 positive cases.  None of our in-county neighbors have yet perished, but not far away, in Clinton County, there has been 1 death.  In Ingham County there has been 1 death.  In Livingston County, 2 people have passed away.  In Genesee County, ten people have lost their lives.  City of Flint Mayor, Sheldon Neeley, has instituted a citywide curfew beginning tonight, as the county now has 349 confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Federal, State and hometown officials -- and we -- implore you to heed the Executive Order to stay inside your home to do your part to stop the spread of Coronavirus.

Today, Governor Whitmer said it might be May before the apex of the disease is realized in Michigan, meaning likely thousands more confirmed cases and an untold number of deaths.

Earlier this week, President Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force team indicated a best case scenario would still mean 100,000 deaths in the United States due to Coronavirus.  That's if everyone in the country follows the social distance recommendations perfectly.

The social distancing recommendations are 6 feet.  Expand your distance when you must be near others, and don't go anywhere to congregate -- no parks, playgrounds, etc... This is for all people of all ages.

You may have Coronavirus now but not know it.  You may get it and never realize that you have it, but you could still give it to someone else whom it might affect in dramatic ways.

Stay Home.  Stay Safe.  Save Lives.
Executive Order 2020-21

Governor Whitmer isn't stepping up, according to President Donald Trump.  The President recently issued criticism of Michigan's leadership as the White House weighs a request by the state for federal aid.

High water in the Great Lakes will affect everyone in the state, officials are advising.  Heading into spring, the lakes are full and many of Michigan's beaches are already vanishing due to extreme weather and climate change.

Students in Michigan will likely not return to class this school year, Governor Whitmer told Detroit radio station WWJ-AM.  Presently, schools are closed through April 13th.

A pedestrian bridge collapsed onto I-94 in Detroit on Friday morning.  It happened in the early morning hours and closed that section of the freeway.  By afternoon, much of the bridge had already been removed.

East Lansing's Wharton Center has cancelled its Young Playwrights Festival originally planned for May 9th due to Coronavirus.

Some Genesee County inmates are being released in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.  Sheriff Chris Swanson said the release of the nonviolent inmates, based on guidance from Gvernor Whitmer, is an effort to decrease the facility population.

A Muskegon man who fell through ice at Pere Marquette Park in late February perished.  A body recently pulled from Lake Michigan has been identified as 30 year old Ramal Roby.
