(WXYZ) — After a delay reporting data Sunday, the state announced three new deaths and 59,990 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Michigan, according to the State of Michigan website.

Michigan is now reporting 189 new cases of the virus, with 5,770 total deaths and 59,990 total confirmed cases as of Sunday.

On Friday, Michigan reported eight new coronavirus deaths and 125 new cases of COVID-19, which brought the state's total to 59,621 cases and 5,745 deaths.

It was the third-lowest increase in cases since mid-March and the third-lowest number of deaths since March 23.

Nearly 45,000 people have recovered from the virus, with that number to be updated on Saturday.

On Friday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced that restrictions would be lived for overnight summer camps on Monday, June 15. That's the same day that barbers, stylists, salons and others will be able to open.

Earlier last week, the state also opened restaurants, and regions 6 and 8 moved into phase 5. Whitmer said she was hopeful to move the rest of the state into phase 5 in the coming weeks.
