August 24-30: CMU Confirms 63 New COVID-19 Cases
Central Michigan University confirmed more than 60 new coronavirus cases in just the last week.
Some students are furious they are still holding class.
The university confirmed 63 new cases between August 24 and August 30.
Since June 15, the school has confirmed 142 cases total.
Some students have been putting up signs around campus. One says, “CMU — how many lives are you willing to harm in the name of profit?”
On Friday, CMU’s president said most of the new cases came from three off-campus houses.
This week, the university began on-campus COVID-19 testing.
Starting Tuesday, the school will begin updating its case numbers every day.
