We now have 3 people infected and 554 suspected cases in the state.
This is factually FALSE.
Data shows 135 people have been approved for testing amid the coronavirus pandemic, while 97 people have tested negative. 26 other tests results are still pending. To date, more than 554 people in Michigan have been referred for assessment and/or monitoring and 172 are under active monitoring.

That 554 number you cite isn't of "suspected cases." Rather, it is of people who have been referred for assessment and/or monitoring. Moreover, out of that number, 97 have ALREADY tested negative (with 3 positive and 26 pending). The positive test rate thus far sits at exactly 3%. Assuming a similar ratio for those who have been referred but not yet tested or results pending, that number is likely closer to 15-20.

In a functioning nation, all 554 persons would have been tested immediately. This issue sits completely in the Donald Jerkoff Trump's lap for his negligence at just about everything.

You seem to really hate this country. How about moving?

I don’t think it’s hating the country... it’s about seeing it be better and any dolt could do better than this pathetic response so far. A good leader would have been quick, decisive and confidence inspiring... we have had none of that and so everyone is figuring it out themselves.

I don’t want to get too political in the broadcasting forum, but I don’t believe this is the role of government. I am for personal responsibility. Government, no matter who is in charge, seems to make things worse and most costly financially.

TC Talks always trashes the US. It’s not just criticism, there are things I criticize and dislike about it, but he goes into full hatred.

💯

Banning crowds of more than 100 is 100% unconstitutional.

I don’t give up my rights because of an emergency.

You don’t see slavery being legalized because of an emergency.

We are seeing a lot of things that we never ever thought we’d see.

Just hope we can fix it before it’s too late

I trash self-interested trustfundies who have no business being in any position of responsibility.

I disliked George Bush's policies and what he did to destabilize the lives of so many, but he was a capable human.

Take a head count as to how many people in top positions in the Fed Gov. are temps or standin's who in an ordinary time have no business being that position due to lack of knowledge or just being a plain suck-up.
Now R Reagan's quote fits, "Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem". (First Inaugural Address on January 20, 1981)
Like any item in life, you are only as strong as your weakest piece. A 2-3 month lead and nothing but ass covering done to prepare. Why did it take so long to just get test kits? How else will we know just how it's spreading and how severe with no evidence.

Oh boy, WHNE just posted this on their facebook:

"ATTENTION WHNE VIEWERS:
Tonight at Midnight the WHNE transmitter will be turned off. WTVS will then take over our current channel. By tomorrow (Friday) several other TV stations in Detroit will also be broadcasting on new channels. You will need to rescan your television set to get the channels updated.
We've been working hard for over a year to get WHNE ready for tonight. We planned everything to the last detail, but our plans didn't work out. We ordered our new channel 3 antenna last fall. It was to be delivered in early January, but it's still not here!
Our new broadcast antenna was ordered from a company in Pennsylvania. They needed a custom made part for the antenna. They ordered this part from a specialty company in Italy about 6 weeks ago. Little did anyone know that because of the coronavirus this company has been all but shut down for the last 3 weeks. The custom part is supposed to be ready to ship, but they can't because of a quarantine on shipping in Italy!
Bottom line here in Detroit is WHNE will be off the air for at least another week. We are exploring all avenues to find a way to get this part or another one made somewhere to replace it.
We will keep you updated here on Facebook as to when we have finished the install and are back on the air broadcasting on our new channel 3.
Up until now, WHNE has been on channel 14, but when we return to the air, we will be found on your television on our new channel 3.
Thanks for watching WHNE TV!"

Fresh off the wire
LANSING, MICH. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the health departments in Ingham, Kent, Montcalm, Oakland, St. Clair and Washtenaw counties announced today 10 adults tested presumptive positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). This brings the state total of COVID-19 cases to 12.

The cases include:

An adult female from Ingham County with history of travel on a cruise.
Two adult females from Kent County and one adult male, all with history of international travel.
An adult female from Montcalm with history of international travel.
Two adult males from Oakland County; one with no travel history and one with domestic travel.
An adult male from St. Clair County with history of domestic travel.
One adult female and one adult male from Washtenaw County; one with history of domestic travel and one with history of international travel

“We continue to urge Michiganders to take precautions to prevent the spread COVID-19 in our state,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health. “We have to proactively implement community mitigation strategies that will help prevent the spread of the disease, and particularly protect our most vulnerable Michiganders.”

It’s clearly spreading way faster than anyone can get a handle on... plus the lack of test kits...

For each person who gets sick, it will spread to 2 - 4 people. Fatalities are 1.5 - 3.4% of those who get sick.

The 2-4 is an average though right? If you are in contact with lots of people (retail, travel) couldn’t you likely infect more?

Of course, but data is evolving. These 10 new cases could be 40 more next week.
