The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) reported Monday that a total of 589,150 Michiganders have tested positive for COVID-19 and 15,534 have died from the virus — an additional 1,569 cases of the coronavirus and 12 deaths since Saturday.
DHHS also reports that an additional 58,265 Michiganders have been identified as “probable” cases for COVID-19, as well as 985 probable deaths. The department began tracking probable cases on April 5.
Combining the state’s confirmed positive cases with probable cases brings the total up to 647,415 statewide cases and 16,519.
The virus has been detected in all of Michigan’s 83 counties. The state’s COVID-19 fatality rate is currently at 2.6%.
The first two cases of COVID-19 were reported in the state on March 10. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency that day.
Johns Hopkins University reports that there are more than 114.3 million confirmed cases worldwide and 2.5 million deaths. The United States makes up a significant portion of those, as more than 28.6 million confirmed cases and 513,905 deaths have been recorded nationally.
