Lansing — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced wide-ranging new restrictions limiting gatherings at high schools, colleges and restaurants Sunday night to combat what she described as the "worst moment" yet in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new policies will temporarily halt in-person instruction at high schools and colleges, indoor dine-in service at restaurants and bars, and high school athletics as well as close some businesses, including movie theaters, bowling alleys and casinos.

Michigan shattered its weekly coronavirus case record last week with a total of 44,019 new cases reported, the fifth consecutive record week for confirmed infections. About 3,220 adults were hospitalized statewide with COVID-19 on Friday, compared with 999 COVID inpatientsa month earlier on Oct. 13, according to state data.

"The dramatic rise in admissions at hospitals across Michigan is not sustainable," said Wright Lassiter III, president and CEO of the Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System. "We strongly urge everyone to honor these restrictions and continue safety measures like wearing masks, avoiding gatherings, and practicing social distancing and hand hygiene."

The state reported 416 new deaths linked to the virus last week, which was the largest weekly total since early May.

How is the US not fully locked down?

The virus is running riot, you're hurtling towards a quarter of million dead and people are still pissing about arguing about masks and social distancing?

Not that The UK is doing much better, but at least our sh*tty government is sort of trying.

It's up to the governors of the individual states to mandate what they feel is appropriate.

Yeah, state by state thing. We just reentered a partial lockdown in Washington.

I think last I checked, the federal stance was "Don't be a p*ssy" or something like that. Maybe upgraded to a "Who cares a vaccine will fix it we think or something".

Can the states close the borders to stop people from other states coming in?

No? Then a state by state approach is worthless.

I don't believe the Feds have the authority to do that either.

Seems a bit extreme.

Our per capita death rate from Covid doesn't seem all that far out of line...

What you can't deny though is that the US had corona totally under control by the end of March ...

States can require people entering to quarantine.

Please just wear your goddamn mask.

Yep, south dakota has the highest per capita infection in the world right now I believe.

Our state isnt doing anything either and our hospitals are now being overrun (with a lot of them being rural patients filling up the hospitals in the cities btw...the cities are doing their best with mask rules etc), sometimes the hospitals will have zero beds or just one, Im hearing of them sending some patients to other states, schools in my city are about to start shutting down again.

"A traveling nurse on assignment in Texas described “horrific” conditions for patients with COVID-19 as hospitals reach max capacity amid a dramatic surge in local cases.

Among the most shocking claims made by registered nurse Lawanna Rivers about her time working at the University Medical Center in El Paso is the existence of a room she calls “The Pit,” where the worst COVID-positive patients were sent to die with minimal treatment and limited efforts at resuscitation.

Due to the sheer number of patients at the hospital, she and other nurses were instructed to give each person in “The Pit” just three rounds of CPR before the person was pronounced dead — a significant reduction to the normal efforts aimed at keeping patients alive."

People around here disagree - well some do, at least and they're very vocal about it.

A few also planned to kidnap and murder her.

So there's that.

Violence is now encouraged as a solution to political disagreement.
