County health officials monitor data as climbing COVID-19 cases draw concern in Michigan
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is sounding the alarm as COVID-19 cases rise rapidly across the state. Within the last 24 hours, 1,597 new COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Michigan. Whitmer addressed the surge in cases during a news conference Wednesday, where she said that Michigan is at a “dangerous moment” regarding coronavirus spread. COVID-19 numbers are on the rise throughout the entire U.S. Experts are looking at Wisconsin’s coronavirus numbers in an effort to predict -- and prevent -- a similar pattern in Michigan.
