DETROIT – The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan has risen to 893,164 as of Friday, including 19,612 deaths, state officials report.
Friday’s update includes a total of 162 new cases and 14 additional deaths. On Thursday, the state reported 893,002 total cases, including 19,598 deaths
Testing has been steady around 20,000 diagnostic tests reported per day on average, with the 7-day positive rate below 1.5% as of Thursday, the lowest on record. Hospitalizations have declined over the last several weeks, now at the lowest point since July 2020.
The state’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 176 on Friday -- the lowest since June 2020. The 7-day death average was 17 on Friday, the lowest since March. The state’s fatality rate is 2.2%. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 21,600 on Friday.
Michigan has reported more than 8.7 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Thursday, with 60.8% of 16+ residents having received at least one dose while 52.2% of 16+ residents are considered fully vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 33.5 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 600,900 deaths reported from the virus. Globally, more than 2.5 billion vaccine doses have been administered, including more than 314 million doses in the U.S. alone.
Worldwide, more than 177 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 3.8 million have died, 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.
