    Michigan adds 4,197 COVID-19 cases, 37 deaths over two days

    Michigan added 4,197 cases and 37 deaths from COVID-19 on Friday, including totals from Thursday.

    The latest figures bring Michigan’s total number of confirmed cases to 929,574 and deaths to 20,113 since the virus was first detected in March 2020, according to the state Department of Health and Human Services. The state averaged more than 2,098 cases per day over the two days, state records show. 

    Of the deaths reported Friday, 13 were identified during a vital records review. 

    So far this week, the state has added 10,441 cases and 102 deaths from the virus.

    Last week, the state has added 8,633 cases and 61 deaths from the virus, marking the sixth straight increase in weekly case totals. The previous week, the state has added 6,567 cases and 30 deaths.

    The weekly record of 50,892 cases was set Nov. 15-21. The second highest weekly total was 47,316 Nov. 22-28.

    The weekly record of 808 deaths was recorded in mid-December.

    Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lifted the state’s remaining COVID-19 restrictions on June 22 after earlier rolling back many others, including indoor and outdoor capacity limitations.

    The United States this week reached President Joe Biden’s goal of having 70% of adults with at least one vaccine dose — a month later than hoped. Through Tuesday, 64.8% of Michigan residents 16 and older had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. About 55% of Michigan residents 12 years and older are fully vaccinated.
