The number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Michigan rose to 389,032 by Friday, including 9,661 deaths, state officials said.
Friday’s update covers 8,689 new cases and another 81 deaths. On Thursday, the state reported a total of 380,343 cases and 9,580 deaths.
New COVID-19 cases are slowing, but deaths continue to rise in Michigan. Tests remained unchanged, reporting more than 46,000 diagnostic tests a day, but the positive rate rose to more than 13.4% last week. Hospital care has steadily increased over the past five weeks, including an increase in critical care and ventilator use.
Michigan’s 7-day moving average on Thursday was 6,712, slightly lower than a week ago. The 7-day mortality average was 102, the highest since April. The state’s mortality rate is 2.4%. The state also reports “active cases” recorded at 206,000 on Thursday, the highest mark on the record. More than 165,000 people were healed in Michigan.
The United States registered more than 3,100 COVID-19 deaths in a single day, destroying the record reached last spring, while the number of Americans hospitalized with the virus first overshadowed 100,000 and new cases began to exceed 200,000 a day. appeared on Thursday. Taken together, the three metrics showed that a country sank deeper into the crisis, and perhaps the worst yet, because of the delayed impact of Thanksgiving, when millions of Americans ignored warnings to stay home and celebrate only with members of their households.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 5.4 million people have been cured in the United States, and more than 14.1 million cases have been reported nationwide. More than 276,700 died in the United States
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 65.4 million people worldwide have been diagnosed as infected and more than 1.5 million have died. The real numbers are certainly much higher, due to limited testing, different methods by nations, nations count the dead, and some governments deliberately underestimate.

How COVID-19 spreads
It spreads per person
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.
- Among people who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
- An infected person through respiratory drops caused by coughing or sneezing.
These drops can get into the mouth or nose of people nearby, or possibly into the lungs.
Can someone spread the virus without being sick?
- People are thought to be most contagious when they are the most symptomatic (the sickest).
- Some spread may be possible before people show symptoms; reported this new coronavirus, but do not think it would be the main way the virus spread.
Extends from contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
It is possible that a person may receive COVID-19 by touching a surface or object on which the virus is located and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, but they do not think this would be the main way the virus spreads. .
How easily the virus spreads
How easily the virus spreads from person to person can vary. Some viruses are very contagious (easily spread), such as measles, while other viruses do not spread so easily. Another factor is whether the spread is sustained, spreading continuously without stopping.
Prevention and treatment
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The best way to prevent disease is to avoid exposure to this virus. As a reminder, the CDC always recommends daily preventive measures to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with patients.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a cloth and then throw the trash in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently affected objects and surfaces with a standard household cleaning spray or cloth.
- Wear a mask or face shield when in public.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after the bathroom; before eating; after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
