DETROIT – The number of confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan rose to 901,683 on Tuesday, including 19,902 deaths, state officials report.
Tuesday’s update includes a total of 1,762 new cases and 19 additional deaths over the past four days – an average of around 440.5 cases and 4.75 deaths per day. The state announced a total of 899,921 cases and 19,883 deaths on Friday.
Of the 19 deaths announced on Tuesday, 15 were identified through a review of vital records.
Tests have dropped to around 10,000 diagnostic tests reported per day on average, with the 7-day positive rate around 4.2% on Tuesday, slightly higher than the previous week. Hospitalizations were down for several weeks until last week, with a slight increase in the number of hospitalized patients.
The state’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 437 on Tuesday, more than triple the July 1 average. The 7-day average of deaths was 5 Tuesday, the lowest since March. The state’s death rate is 2.2%. The state is also reporting “active cases,” which were listed at 10,600 on Tuesday.
Michigan reported more than 9 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine given on Friday, with 63.2% of 16+ residents who received at least one dose while 55% of 16+ residents are considered fully vaccinated.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 34.5 million cases have been reported in the United States, with over 611,000 deaths reported from the virus. Worldwide, more than 3.9 billion doses of vaccines have been administered, including over 341 million doses in the United States alone.
In the world, more than 194 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 4.1 million have 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.
