DETROIT – Michigan reported 10,094 new cases of COVID-19 and 90 virus-related deaths Friday -- an average of 5,047 cases over the past two days, the highest daily average since April.

Friday’s update brings the total number of confirmed COVID cases in Michigan to 1,157,606, including 22,474 deaths. These numbers are up from 1,147,512 cases and 22,384 deaths, as of Wednesday.

The deaths announced Friday include 48 identified during a Vital Records review

Testing has increased to around 40,000 diagnostic tests reported per day on average, with the 7-day positive rate at 12.3% as of Wednesday. Hospitalizations remain elevated but are relatively stable.

The state’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 4,167 on Friday, the highest since April. The 7-day death average was 44 on Friday. The state’s fatality rate is 2.0%. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 132,000 on Friday.

Michigan has reported more than 10 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Wednesday, with 69.5% of 16+ residents having received at least one dose while 60.7% of 16+ residents are considered fully vaccinated.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 46 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 745,000 deaths reported from the virus. Globally, more than 7.1 billion vaccine doses have been administered, including more than 422 million doses in the U.S. alone.

Worldwide, more than 247 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 5 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.
