Michigan coronavirus (COVID-19) cases up to 106,215; Death toll now at 6,534 – Health News Today

The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan has risen to 106,215 as of Saturday, including 6,534 deaths, state officials report.

Saturday’s update represents 838 new cases and 8 additional deaths. That is up from 105,377 cases and 6,526 deaths reported Friday.

The deaths announced today include 3 deaths identified during a Vital Records review.

Michigan reported 80,678 recoveries today. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 22,000 on Thursday . Michigan’s 7-day moving average for daily cases was 637 on Thursday. The state’s fatality rate is 6.2 percent.

New cases have slightly increased in the last week, while deaths remain flat in Michigan. Testing has remained steady, with an average of more than 30,000 per day, with the positive rate between 3 and 3.5 percent. The state reported its highest one-day testing total with more than 41,000 diagnostic tests on Aug. 21.

Hospitalizations have increased slightly over the last month but remain lower than in April. Ventilator use was at its lowest point since tracking on Thursday.

According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 2.2 million have recovered in the U.S., with more than 6.2 million cases reported across the country. More than 187,000 have died in the U.S.

Worldwide, more than 26.3 million people have been confirmed infected and over 875,000 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.
