Breitbart News reports that Michigan, under the tyrannical thumb of Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, topped the U.S. daily tally of new coronavirus cases this week despite standing firm on its draconian mask mandate.
The state reported a record number of new cases on Monday: 11,082, beating its previous daily high — 10,140 — back on November 20. The state has reported approximately 780,000 cases of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic.
Michigan currently requires residents to wear a mask “any time people from two or more households are present in any shared space,” including outdoors. The state also promotes wearing a mask while exercising “if it does not interfere in the exercise, even when not required.” It also promotes the concept of double-masking.
“Michigan is currently the worst affected U.S. state in terms of new cases and hospitalizations per 100,000 people in the week to April 5,” Reuters reported, adding that Michigan was the only state to report over 7,000 new cases on Monday.
So much for following the science.
