According to WILX, Governor Gretchen Whitmer is telling the younger generation to take her stay at home executive order seriously.

I couldn't agree more. It's all about staying home and staying safe. We're all in this together and that means young and old alike need to heed the stay at home order.

Right now, 40% of the hospitalizations and positive cases are among people 20 to 49.

Governor Whitmer revealed that shocking fact Monday during her announcement of her executive order to stay home and stay safe.

Chief Medical Officer Denny Martin at Sparrow Hospital says that younger generations may be carrying coronavirus without even knowing it.

The Governor says that vaping is also playing a role among the younger generation making them more susceptible.

Smoking of all types would be a risk for an individual no matter their age to have a more significant infection with this virus.

Even the Surgeon General warned that the coronavirus outbreak will worsen this week and people across the country are not taking the threat seriously enough.
