Testing has been stable around 30,000 diagnostic tests reported per day on average, with the 7-day positive rate less than 5% Thursday, the lowest for several weeks. Hospitalizations have declined in recent weeks.
Overall, new cases have slowed down over the past 28 days. The state’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 726 on Friday – the lowest in several weeks. The 7-day average of deaths was 37 on Friday. The state’s death rate is 2.2%. The state is also reporting “active cases,” which were listed at 77,000 on Friday.

Michigan has reported more than 8.2 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine administered as of Thursday, with 58.5% of 16+ residents have received at least one dose during 49% of residents aged 16 and over are considered fully vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 33.2 million cases have been reported in the United States., with over 593,000 deaths reported by the virus. Overall, over 1.8 billion doses of vaccine were administered, including over 290 million doses in the United States alone.
Around the world, more than 169 million people have been confirmed infected and over 3.5 million died, according to Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are certainly much higher, due to the limited testing, the different ways nations count the dead, and the deliberate underreporting of some governments.
