Detroit Police Department begins crackdown on large rallies to prevent spread of coronavirus


DETROIT – With more than 3,500 cases of coronavirus in Detroit, city officials urge residents to follow the home stay order.

Since large gatherings are still an issue, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan is taking action to stop the spread of the coronavirus, including removing basketball nets from the parks.

Unless residents are required to do things deemed essential under the House Keeping Decree, including going to the grocery store or dealing with a medical situation, they are encouraged to stay at home.

People can go out to exercise, but have to be six feet apart. Duggan says he will implement a four-point plan. The city will pay special attention to parks, increase the staff of the Real Time Crime Center and use aerial surveillance.

Duggan also encourages people to report large gatherings if they are spotted.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services issued an emergency order Thursday for a civil fine of up to $ 1,000 for violating orders related to the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan rose to 12,744 on Friday, including 479 deaths, state officials said.
