Why isn't she being asked why Michigan has the NUMBER ONE WORST case fatality rate in the entire COUNTRY, despite her draconian actions!!

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/coron ... ed-states/
Probably because Michigan is actually the 7th worse behind NY, NJ, CT, MA, LA, and DC? The confirmed case fatality rate isn't reliable because of the difference in testing rates and how soon testing was available relative to when many people were getting sick. Michigan was way, way behind on testing when all this started, inflating the number you are looking at. There were countless positive cases here that weren't tested -- if they had been, those positive results for people that lived would have normalized that number.

Data is a tricky business.

That makes no sense. The testing in Michigan is on par with many of the top states, so we're capturing nearly all the cases as "confirmed" and our currrent "confirmed" rate is down to about 7%. Your response might have held water the first couple weeks into the event, but not now.

Not one media person has asked why she exempted churches from her order by adding the no enforcement clause.

Why does she keep using the "you could infect 40 people" line??! That was never true even at the height of infections!!

The current R0 for Michigan is estimated between 0.6 and 0.75.

Because she doesn’t use facts or science to maintain her power. She uses the false information that was being spread about the virus before we HAD any data. Now we have it and she ignores it. It’s called the Whitmer move. When the facts aren’t on her side, she digs her feet in and insists that SHE is “saving lives.” No ego there whatsoever.

Re-election is in 2022... if the Republicans in Congress get off their lazy asses and get working with the democrats on the aid for states and municipalities that will mitigate much of that.

Red states would also benefit. The post office is on deaths door and Ruby red rural area depend on it. This idea that it’s all for blue states is bullshit. A lot of things people depend on are about to sink and all you can say is “let them die” when in reality such action will turn a recession into a depression whether you like that fact or not.

Media has mostly ignored the looming budget crisis. Putting them on unemployment accomplishs little. The state pays unemployment while they do nothing, unlike a private employer.
