Governor Reeves briefs on public health crisis

Governor Tate Reeves held another press conference this afternoon regarding the public health crisis unfolding across the country.

Reeves also touched on the unemployment claims that increased to 3,000 percent in Mississippi.

Governor Reeves said Camp Shelby is being outfitted to house 200 beds. He said the plan is to have the beds ready before they are needed.

He also explained that Mississippi could possibly see a dangerous, deadly week ahead. Health experts on the nation’s Task Force say peak in the state of Mississippi could be nearly two weeks away, but predictions differ each day. “They predict that we are 12 days away from peak resource use. That would be April 18th. Just yesterday the model suggested April 21st. Lots of changes are happening readily. It could be sooner or later, but we believe it will be near the last two weeks of April.”

Governor Reeves issued a stay-at-home order that went into effect Friday at 5 p.m. It will end April 20th at 8 a.m.
