Coronavirus mask generic

As Michigan hospitals face potential shortages of personal protective equipment the Governor is asking for denotations of supplies.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer is asking residents and businesses to donate the items most needed by hospitals.

“Our brave medical professionals and first-responders are on the front lines of keeping us safe, and we must do everything we can to protect them and every Michigander we can from the spread of COVID-19,” Governor Whitmersaid.

Items most needed at hospitals are:

  • Gowns
  • Ventilators
  • Sanitizer (hand and wipes)
  • Gloves
  • Surgical masks
  • N95-N100 masks
  • No-touch thermometers

“Our clinicians are working tirelessly to care for those affected by this pandemic,” said Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Chief Deputy for Health and Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun. “They deserve to be able to do their jobs safely and these donations will help protect the health and safety of both providers and patients.”

Did you ever find the answer to your question?


Wondering what ties our governor has to George Soros, why he donated so heavily to her campaign. Does she work for us or him????


I was wondering the same you know how much money he donated and where I can get that information?


Still looking and have found one article suggesting that one of Soro's family, a Jeffrey donated to Whitmer's campaign heavily. He's supposedly a friend of Susan Sarandan. If that's how it's spelled. I was in no way notified of your responses. Wound up back here doing a search for the connection between the two of them.


Sorry, but everything you've written here is a flat out lie. Soros and Sarandon donated to Abdul Al-Sayed's campaign. Not Whitmer's. Shame on you.



I looked at the campaign finances and didn't find Soros donating to her campaign.
