In a wide-ranging interview via Zoom with Deadline Detroit columnist Greg Bowens, Whitmer talks about the pandemic, race, its disproportionate impact on black lives in Michigan (including people she knows), concerns about spreading disinformation about Covid and the movement against the government's stay-home order.
