Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) said in a Twitter post Wednesday he rejects “dictatorship models like China,” a day after he signed an executive order in response to the novel coronavirus.

Details: Reeves’ order Tuesday aims to limit people’s physical interactions, but the Jackson Free Press notes it “seems to declare that most types of businesses in Mississippi are ‘essential,'” including public and private industries and institutions. The move caused confusion as to whether it overrides stay-at-home orders issued by local authorities, the Mississippi Today reports.

What he’s saying: “We’re following our experts and I’ve spent many sleepless nights praying for wisdom in this unprecedented time,” Reeves tweeted.

Context: Reeves made the comments in response to a segment on “‘The Rachel Maddow Show” Tuesday on Mississippi not enacting a stay-at-home order, and a subsequent post of the video on MSNBC’s website Tuesday, headlined: “Mississippi governor untroubled by COVID crises in neighboring states.” Reeves called the report a “dangerous lie.”

The big picture: Mississippi had confirmed 377 cases and five deaths from the virus Wednesday, per the state health department.
