(WXYZ) — There are now 4,584 deaths and 47,552 cases of coronavirus in Michigan, according to the latest numbers released by the State of Michigan on Monday.

That's up 33 deaths and 414 cases from Sunday, when there were 4,551 deaths and 47,138 cases. Sunday's numbers included the lowest number of deaths since March.

Overall, 22,686 have recovered from the virus, according to the state. That number will be updated Saturday. Recovery includes confirmed COVID-19 cases who are 30 days out from their onset, but the pool will expand as the pandemic continues.

On Thursday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a new executive order to extend Michigan's Stay Home, Stay Safe order until May 28. The new order will also allow manufacturing to go back to work.

Those manufacturing jobs began on Monday.

The Blue Angels will fly over Detroit, Ann Arbor, Novi and more on Tuesday morning to honor healthcare workers.
