    Michigan coronavirus (COVID-19) cases up to 63,870, Death toll now at 5,947

    The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan has risen to 63,870 as of Tuesday, including 5,947 deaths, state officials report.

    Tuesday’s update represents 373 new confirmed cases and an additional 32 deaths (27 from Vital Records review). Monday’s total was 63,497 confirmed cases and 5,915 deaths.

    New cases have increased slightly in the last week, while deaths remain flat in Michigan. Testing has increased slightly in the last week, with an average of more than 15,000 per day. After an uptick last week, hospitalizations have declined again.

    Michigan has reported 51,099 COVID-19 recoveries. The state also reports “active cases,” which were listed at 6,600 as of Monday. The 7-day average jumped from 177 (June 15-21) to 290 (June 22-28) last week for new daily cases.

    According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 705,000 have recovered in the U.S., with more than 2.6 million cases reported across the country. More than 129,000 have died in the U.S.

    Worldwide, more than 10.4 million people have been confirmed infected and over 509,000 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.

    Coronavirus case numbers are rising to dire new levels in several U.S. states and around the world, potentially wiping out two months of progress in fighting the pandemic and prompting governments and businesses to impose new restrictions.
