Michigan coronavirus dashboard: cases, deaths and maps

Bridge Magazine today is introducing the Michigan Coronavirus Dashboard to update the latest information about the pandemic.

The dashboard will update daily and include maps and charts showing the number of coronavirus cases, location of the virus, deaths and demographics. 

The dashboard also provides context for the epidemic showing, for instance, how deaths have increased fourfold in seven days; how the virus now extends to nearly every county in the Upper Peninsula and how men are disproportionately dying of the virus.

The dashboard is affixed to Bridge’s website, will be prominently featured on our Coronavirus Tracker and adjusted as the pandemic progresses.

For your serious consideration. There are still people who are not following the Governor's orders and not staying home, which endangers other lives. I suggest that all essentials be made deliverable. This way no one has an excuse to be away from home. The essential employees are provided with a well placed visible authorization sign on their vehicle. They deliver the item then let the household know that the items are outside their door. It has been suggested that items be left outside for three days, we know that this is not practical for some items.
If a car is on the road, and does not have a sticker, it is impounded until this epidemic is over. I know this sounds overboard but how else do we contain this virus. It is killing people everyday. Thank you for listening. A proud Michigander, Pauline Rector

First of all get your facts straight. There have been numerous article's debunking the grocery statement. There has been no proof your groceries are a viable way to get the virus. Secondly there is so many essential people doing essential work on a day-to-day basis. Disease happens all the time it is population control. Yes we need to stay at home and social distance. We are doing the maximum we can. This is life people will die from this and unless you want draconian measures that's how it is

You sound ignorant....what proof its on groceries?! The virus can stay on surfaces for HOURS. So if your sick friend goes grocery shopping and coughs.....everything in the small area is now contaminated. Including cardboard boxes and cases of water. With lottery, alcohol, and still having BBQ stuff out, we are NOT doing everything we can. We should be online shopping and essential workers take it to our car so they dont get sick from college kids with 0 symptoms. Think about it

I live in the U.P. the closest grocery store is 15 miles away they don't deliver and we have to drive there. Even as remote as we are, I still were a mask and stay as far away from people as I can.
I also see others doing the same. The most people I see are the ones on the rivers and lakes fishing. I guess I don't really understand city folk (lol).

The postman could be delivering Covid-19 to you daily. Delivery is part of the problem

Last night I read that it was wrong to buy paint or garden mulch at Menard or Lowes and I suppose Home Depot, too. We can buy on line and pick up without harm or breaking social distancing!

Hey, I need mulch for my bare ground and garden I wish to start! I need help to get the rototiller started and till the front of my house. I need help and this need not stop springtime gardening or those who need to paint their homes!

"State Rep. Jim Lower, R-Greenville, said Whitmer's stay-at-home order hurts businesses like landscapers, lawn care companies, plant nurseries and greenhouses.

He argued it’s unfair that big-box hardware and grocery stores can remain open and sell gardening tools and plants but small businesses that serve those same demands were forced to close."

There is no where to run or hide. As soon as 1% of the population was infected the game was over. Some are going to be infected, some will survive. Make your peace with the almighty. You can stay huddled in the corner and pretend we are not amidst an unprecedented crisis. But we can’t keep everything shut down forever. And sad as it is this is going to take a much bigger toll than any of us would like. God be with us, we all need him right now.

Maybe if people from down state would stop coming up state to go to their cabins, which is most likely why it spread so fast, we wouldn't have so many cases. Stay where you are at! Just because you don't have symptoms now doesn't mean you don't have it, and then go to every gas station and grocery store when you travel to come up state. Doesn't seem like social distancing to me.

This state supported Trump, which hints that they also watch Fox "News" - both downplayed this and even now there are Trump/militia groups on FaceBook downplaying this.

Also, like New York, Florida, California, and Washington state, Michigan is a border and/or port state (Canada) with higher levels of international travellers. This increases exposure.

Are people who have been taking hydroxychol for other reasons being followed to see if they get the virus.?
