If you want to get an idea of the enormity of the threat of Covid-19 to Michigan, I encourage you to follow Crain’s Detroit Business Senior Editor Chad Livengood on Twitter. He & Crain’s are sharing some jaw-dropping photos and reporting on the nearly completed 1000 bed hospital at Detroit’s TCF Center (formerly Cobo Hall). He adds that Lt. Col. Greg Turner, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Detroit district expects Gov. Whitmer to ask them to build a second field hospital inside the Suburban Showplace convention hall in Novi.
Here’s a link to free Covid-19 coverage from Crain’s. I also encourage you to take a look at #DetroitLooksLikeThis for a peek into life in Michigan’s largest city as we prepare for the fallout of being on the leading edge of the pandemic. Stay strong everyone.
