What is a “recovery," exactly?

According to MDHHS, “recovered” is defined 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.

The number of people reported recovered on July 31, 2020 represents COVID-19 confirmed individuals with an onset date on or prior to July 1, 2020. If an individual dies from a COVID-related cause more than 30 days from onset/referral, they are removed from the number of persons recovered.

These numbers will be updated every Saturday.

Michigan reported its first confirmed cases of COVID-19 on March 10 and the first death associated with the virus on March 18.
