Michigan Observes a Worrying Spike in Covid-19 Cases

Michigan Covid-19 Cases are on the rise and could become a worrying factor across the states. Covid-19 infections have been on an upsurge in over a dozen states across the county. Michigan becomes the second state behind Delaware to experience the largest number of spikes over the past few weeks.

The state of Michigan has reported a high surge since the last week of February and is showing signs of the B.1.1.7 variant of the Coronavirus. The variant was first identified in the United Kingdom, according to the theories of experts at John Hopkins University.

“If we want to get back to normal…we all need to get vaccinated, encourage our loved ones and friends and co-workers and neighbors to do so.” Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said in a statement.

The spikes came as Michigan is concocting to roll out the state’s largest vaccination site at Ford Field in Detroit. On Thursday, Whitmer along with other state leaders took the center by surprise revealing that the largest vaccination site is due to open on March 24. The site will get up and running with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. It will have the capacity to administer 6,000 doses daily of the three authorized vaccines in the United States.

Dr. Jennifer Morse said that there is a long list of factors contributing to the recent surge in the Covid-19 cases in Michigan. The health experts believe that the recent rollback of certain restrictions is a prominent factor in spiking up the cases.

Witmer announced ease of restrictions earlier this month, increasing capacity limits at restaurants, retail stores,i and gyms from 25% to 50% capacity. He claimed that the state has moved quite ahead in the process of combating the infection, but remains tethered to the science while easing restrictions.
