Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters announced in a press release sent out Tuesday that Michigan will receive an additional $6.3 million in Centers for Disease Control, or CDC, funding from the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act that the senators passed.
“Michigan is now a hotspot for COVID-19 and every community in the state is impacted," Stabenow said in the press release. "The lack of testing supplies and equipment, scarcity of personal protection equipment for our medical providers and shortage of hospital personnel are stressing our health care system like never before. This funding will provide more support to our state at this incredibly urgent time,” Stabenow said in the release.
