The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) reported Monday that 83,386 Michiganders have tested positive for COVID-19 and 6,212 have died from the virus — an additional 604 cases and six deaths since Sunday.
DHHS also notes that an additional 8,988 Michiganders have been identified as “probable” cases for COVID-19, as well as 251 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 92,374 statewide cases and 6,467 deaths.
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 18.1 million confirmed cases worldwide and 690,573 deaths. In the United States, there are 4.6 million confirmed cases and 155,062 deaths.
A statewide coronavirus hotline is open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 1-888-535-6136. Information can be found on the DHHS website or the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention website.
