Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that the state will impose a lockdown, limiting gatherings and other social activities, starting Wednesday and continuing until 12/9. This order has drawn a sharp response from Dr. Scott Atlas, a leading member of the Trump Administration’s coronavirus task force, saying in a tweet, “The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept.”
The order given by the Governor closes schools, indoor dining, and mandate that people work from home unless working from home is impossible otherwise.
Statewide lockdowns have become a source of contention in the US, as many see them as an overreach of governmental powers and infringements on individual rights.
Dr. Atlas took to twitter to address false accusations asserting that Dr. Atlas was calling for violence.
It is expected that more states will impose lockdowns, without the consent of the governed, as the nation continues into the colder months.
