Michigan Health Officials Report 6,311 New Coronavirus Cases, 10 Deaths
Michigan health officials are reporting 6,311 new cases of the coronavirus, the largest increase in one day for 2021, and 10 additional COVID-19 deaths.
Michigan continues to see a sharp increase in daily cases compared to weeks before. The past three days averaged more than 4,000 new cases each.
In total, Michigan has reached 672,259 cases and 16,092 deaths since the pandemic began.
Recoveries number 569,460 as of March 26. The state defines ‘recovered’ as the number of persons with a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis who are alive 30 days post-onset (or referral date if onset is not available).
Health officials are worried about another new coronavirus wave and they’re asking states not to lower their restrictions so fast.
COVID-19 cases are rising in at least 27 states, including Washington, D.C. The number of cases in the U.S. is up 13% in the past week.
The recent uptick in cases appears mostly in the northeast and Midwest, likely due to the weather because people are gathering indoors where the virus spreads more easily.
