UPDATE: 5:07 Monday…

New coronavirus cases in Michigan jumped by 293 cases, amounting to 1,328 cases statewide, about 96 more cases than initially reported earlier today by Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Department Health and Human Services’ chief medical executive.

Ms. Whitmer and Dr. Joneigh Khaldun with DHHS said during a press conference earlier today that the state had 1,232 cases with seven new deaths, bringing the statewide total to 15.

Detroit continues to see a high number of cases at 414. The state has Detroit’s tally at a slightly lower number, but Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said it was 414 at an early afternoon press conference.

The uptick in cases came on a day when Ms. Whitmer issued a stay-at-home order containing exceptions for “critical infrastructure workers” and those necessary to keep up an employer’s “minimum basic operations.”

UPDATE: 10:00 am Sunday...

Another 249 people in Michigan have tested positive for the new coronavirus with three more people having lost their lives to the disease, bringing the state’s total number of COVID-19 cases to 1,035 and deaths to eight, the Department of Health and Human Services said today.

Once again, confirmed cases in Detroit are running much higher than the city’s proportion of Michigan’s population. Thirty-one percent of the new statewide cases, or 77 of them, were confirmed in the city. The city also has 31 percent of the state’s total cases, 325 of 1,035.

Whether this is a result of more available testing in the city than elsewhere or a greater prevalence of the disease is unclear.

The new numbers are as of 10 a.m. today.
