Dr. Birx Calls Out Michigan As the Next Coronavirus Hotspot
Get ready. Michigan is the next hot spot for coronavirus. I know it seems like we're already a hot spot, but during Thursday's White House press conference, Dr. Deborah Birx called out Michigan (and surrounding states Indiana and Illinois) as one of the next really hot spots.
According to Bloomberg News, Dr. Birx (who looks like your mom, but used to be a colonel in the U.S. Army - wait - was your mom a colonel?) says positive tests are the key. New York and New Jersey have the highest percentage of positive tests at 35%. Dr Birx said:
We do have two states that have 35% positives. And that’s New York and New Jersey. So that confirms very clearly that that’s a very clear and an important hot zone.
She then went on to say:
Michigan, Connecticut, Indiana, Georgia, Illinois -- that should tell you where the next hot sports are coming -- are at 15% test positive
So - it's on, now. Then Dr. Birx went on to explain that this still comes down to washing your hands and keeping your distance from other people. Let's get on it.
