"We are seeing an explosion in Michigan despite having very strict policies in place, a mandate mask, limited powers, working from home. We have called on our country to suspend it for two weeks," Whitmer said in an interview with "Face a Nation." "So in spite of all that, we see an outbreak because of these diversity. And that's why we're encouraging them to consider injecting vaccines in the Michigan region."
Whitmer on Friday began by publicly urging Biden officials to send more doses of coronavirus vaccine to the government as it would increase cases of hospitalization, hospitalization and death. But while Michigan is one of the nation's worst coronavirus sites, the state government has refused to send more shots to the government and instead maintains its plan to distribute doses based on adults.
Jeffrey Zients, co-ordinator of the White House COVID-19 Response Team, said management would send more vaccine, testing, medical and medical supplies to Michigan.
Whitmer, however, said the state has the potential to acquire more guns and warned that maintaining strict drug distribution systems could also harm other provinces in the event of an outbreak.
"In making this huge figure, with such an effect, it is important to see where some adjustments may be needed along the way," he said, adding that in the past two weeks, more than a million people had been shot dead in Michigan.
The state, he said, "has thousands of partners" ready to administer the drugs, but "we just need those vaccines to get into Michigan."
"If there is an increase in population, we think it's important that we rush to meet where it is needed, because what happened in Michigan today could be what happened in other states tomorrow," Whitmer said. "And then it's up to all of us to see if we can cast a spell where we see tropical areas. It's better for everyone."
As of Thursday, Michigan has provided more than 5.3 million vaccine doses for coronavirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While state citizens 16 years and older are eligible for firearms, Whitmer abandoned its commitment to lowering the requirement for residents to have a vaccination period, which could raise vaccination rates in communities without internet access.
"We had a nomination process and it worked really well," he said. "And I think with a lot of vaccines, we will continue to see that work well."
While Whitmer used some of the nation's most difficult mitigation measures during the outbreak of coronavirus infection, he would also not be committed to authorizing children to be vaccinated before returning to school. Pfizer said last week it had asked the FDA to approve its vaccine for young people between the ages of 12 and 15.
"Schools can do that well. At the moment, we don't have that conversation," he said. "I can tell you this. We have continued to have good reduction policies. We have continued to pass guns and arms. And that is only to have me reduced power due to opposition from my legislature." So there is no discussion on that side. But we urge schools to move forward, pause now and set goals to keep their students and staff safe. "
Whitmer said the size of his province in the coronavirus infection at previous low infection rates, meaning fewer people have immune systems, increased diversity and residents' fatigue in reducing their activities.
