Gov. Whitmer gives COVID-19 Update

As COVID cases spike, Michigan is doubling down on promising therapeutic treatments and on preventative measures that work: Wearing a mask, washing hands and maintaining social distance.

 

Although the governor did not introduce any new restrictions, Michigan has five times the number of coronavirus cases it had in February, and an 18% positivity rate.

 

Since January, 291 clusters have been identified as connected to school sports alone.

 

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said infusion treatments including the monoclonal treatments Regeneron and Eli Lilly are "another tool in our tool box" that the state plans to emphasize.

 

So far, 6,600 Michiganders have gotten the treatment. The state also pledged to increase the number of infusion sites around the state.
