Water in the Flint river has been contaminated by the deadly Flint River bacteria.
Now the state’s water regulator is asking local and federal authorities to take action.
Flint has a history of outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, and in some cases the illness has been fatal.
The state has been under heavy federal scrutiny and has taken a number of drastic measures, including shutting down its emergency operations centre.
But it is still facing a threat of a coronavirus pandemic, which could have far-reaching consequences for the state.
On Monday, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it is investigating reports of the spread of the coronaviruses coronaviral and pneumonia viruses, as well as Legionnaires’.
It said it was concerned that cases in the city are not being reported to the CDC and are not receiving the necessary response.
Flint is in a state of emergency, with no official state-run water source, and a number local residents are using bottled water.
It is estimated that at least 70% of Flint’s population is now using tap water.
The city has been dealing with the contamination for months and there is no known cure.
Officials in Washington state, which is in the middle of a similar emergency, have said they are monitoring the situation closely.
Meanwhile, the number of Legionnaire’s cases in Flint has been steadily rising, according to the state health department.
State and local authorities have been warning residents to use bottled water, which has become a staple of the community.
Local and federal officials have been monitoring the state-of-the-art emergency operations center in Flint, the city’s water utility and the state of Michigan’s water authority.
At the state level, state leaders have issued an emergency order to take steps to keep people out of their homes and to monitor the situation in Flint.
The governor has also called for the city to close down its water and sewer system.
“There is no question that the situation is getting worse,” Mr Snyder said on Monday.
“It’s a problem of the people of Flint.
It’s a situation of the population and the city of Flint.”
He added: “We will not let the city get away with this.”
The state has not announced any changes to the emergency order, which would not require emergency authorities to close the city down, or the measures it proposes.
Facing the threat of Legionellosis, the state has ordered the state Department of Health and Human Services to open an investigation into the outbreak.
Mr Snyder said he would be “tough” with officials to protect Flint residents.
In his State of the State address last month, Mr Snyder warned of the “unprecedented” threat of the pandemic and urged the federal government to do more.
The president said he and other US leaders were committed to protecting the country from the threat posed by the coronaviirus, while also urging states to take measures to ensure residents were not exposed to the disease.
US Secretary of Health Anthony Fauci said the federal agency would review the findings from the coronavalirus investigation, which were announced on Tuesday.
He also said that a US health official had already briefed him on the state and local response to the coronavaise.
“I have confidence that our federal government will take all necessary actions to protect the people in this country from this pandemic,” Mr Faucci said.
