Testing has been steady around 35,000 diagnostic tests reported per day on average, with the 7-day positive rate above 5% as of Monday. The state has reported a slight up-tick in Hospitalizations over the last two weeks.

Michigan’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 1,795 on Monday -- an increase from last week. The 7-day death average was 15 on Monday. The state’s fatality rate is 2.6%. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 38,100 on Monday -- near the lowest it’s been since October. More than 556,000 have recovered in Michigan.

Michigan has reported more than 3 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered, as of Monday.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 29.5 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 535,000 deaths reported from the virus.

Worldwide, more than 120 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 2.6 million have died. More than 68 million have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University. The true numbers are certainly much higher, because of limited testing, different ways nations count the dead and deliberate under-reporting by some governments.
