The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan has risen to 83,386 as of Monday, including 6,212 deaths, state officials report.

Monday’s update represents 604 new cases and six additional deaths. Sunday’s totals brought the state up to 82,782 overall cases and 6,206 deaths.

New cases have increased moderately in recent weeks, while deaths remain flat in Michigan. Testing has remained steady, with an average of more than 25,000 per day, with the positive rate between 3 and 4 percent. Hospitalizations have increased slightly, but remain considerably lower than in April.

Michigan has reported 60,022 recoveries. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 18,000 as of Friday. Michigan’s 7-day average moving average for daily cases was 680 on Sunday, the highest since early May.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 1.4 million have recovered in the U.S., with more than 4.6 million cases reported across the country. More than 154,000 have died in the U.S.

Worldwide, more than 18.1 million people have been confirmed infected and over 690,000 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.
