Below is a chart that compares the number of cases in Michigan with the number of cases in Italy, beginning with the first day that a case was confirmed in each location.

(For reference, Italy's population is roughly six times that of Michigan. Italy is also about twice the size of the state of Michigan.)

Earlier on Thursday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-35, which ended face-to-face classes in all K-12 schools in Michigan for the remainder of the school year.

Michigan is currently under a "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order until at least April 13, 2020.
