Michigan said on Friday evening that 54% of adults aged 16 and over had received at least one vaccine for COVID-19, a jump of about 2.5 percentage points after counting those vaccinated outside state or federal institutions.
Adding nearly 227,000 residents to the state’s tally puts Michigan near a benchmark rate of 55%. According to Governor Gretchen, there is a need to allow face-to-face work in all sectors, including offices. The reopening stage will take place two weeks after reaching the milestone.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 32.6 million cases have been reported in the United States., with over 580,000 dead reported by the virus.
Around the world, more than 157 million people have been confirmed infected and over 3.2 million died. More … than 92 million have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University. The real numbers are certainly much higher, due to the limited testing, the different ways nations count the dead, and the deliberate underreporting of some governments.
