COVID-19 didn't go away on November 4


'While children are less likely to get severely ill from COVID-19, they are not immune ... Children can still get the disease, they can die from it, and they can spread it to others who may be at higher risk for severe illness' ~ @DrKhaldun @@MDHHS_CME To Tweet

“We are always concerned when a virus has gone from humans to animals, and back to humans. Each time this happens, it can change more ... we want to stop this back and forth and the changes that can result.” ~@WHO @NatGeo #COVID19Click To Tweet
'It comes from humans, is transmitted to minks where it spreads ... and mutates in a manner we don't see in humans. Then it jumps back to the human population and rest of the world' ~@AndersFomsgaard @SSI_dk @ESCVirology #COVID19 To Tweet





Elections in Michigan

This would be a noteworthy change. In late September, the court’s GOP majority joined together to rule that Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lacked the executive authority to issue orders on coronavirus safety measures. This led Whitmer to step up her backing for “Spice and Jam” — i.e., McCormack and Welch. ~Larry Sabato
