Governor Whitmer Says Herd Immunity With COVID-19 “Inhumane”

COVID-19 cases continue to rise faster than any other time this year. Governor Whitmer says it can be traced back to three weeks ago when the Michigan Supreme Court tossed out her executive orders.

“Since that time, we have seen a steady rise in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations,” said Whitmer. “We are now at our peak when it comes to daily new cases. This peak is higher, is higher, than what we saw in April.”

Whitmer said some are seeking the wrong solution.

We’ve seen some of our leaders embracing dangerous ideas like herd immunity. Let me be clear: that philosophy is inhumane. Health experts have said that if we embrace herd immunity, 30,000 more Michiganders would die from this virus.”

She said we have to continue to take it seriously and wear masks, social distance, and stay home if sick.
