DETROIT – Michigan reported 21,034 new cases of COVID-19 and 95 virus-related deaths Monday -- an average of 7,011.3 cases over the past three days.

Monday’s update brings the total number of confirmed COVID cases in Michigan to 1,209,712, including 22,862 deaths. These numbers are up from 1,188,678 cases and 22,767 deaths, as of Friday.

The deaths announced Monday include 27 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 15.62% as of Friday, an increase from last week. Hospitalizations have been steadily increasing for several weeks.

The state’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 6,171 on Monday, the highest since April. The 7-day death average was 45 on Monday. The state’s fatality rate is 1.9%. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 160,000 on Monday.

Michigan has reported more than 10 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Wednesday, with 70.2% of 16+ residents having received at least one dose while 60.9% of 16+ residents are considered fully vaccinated.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 46.9 million cases have been reported in the U.S., with more than 762,500 deaths reported from the virus. Globally, more than 7.4 billion vaccine doses have been administered, including more than 435 million doses in the U.S. alone.

Worldwide, more than 252 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.
