Michigan saw a slight decrease in new Covid-19 cases Sunday after a rough week.

Michigan averaged 782 new daily Covid-19 cases in the last 7 days (August 23rd -August 29th).  That's the worst week for new cases since the last week of April.  However, there is good news to be found in the numbers.  The average new daily deaths in August are dramatically lower than they were in April in May.

For the first 2-3 months Michigan had the 3rd most Covid cases and 2nd most deaths in the U.S.  As our state put many safety measures in place we now have the 14th most Covid cases and 7th most deaths.

After having a very promising June, Michigan is seeing a very steady and dangerous trend with increased new daily Covid-19 cases in July.  We still need to practice social distancing and follow other CDC guidelines.  Below you'll find both Total Confirmed Covid-19 Cases and Daily New Cases in Michigan.
