(WXYZ) — There are 164,274 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 7,239 deaths in Michigan, the state reported Tuesday.
That's up 2,367 cases and 28 deaths from the day before.
The numbers reflect a dramatic increase of positive cases across the state.
“COVID is spreading across Michigan. Cases are up dramatically. Deaths are also increasing substantially. Every part of the state is being hit at this point. No race or ethnicity is immune,” says Robert Gordon, Director of MDHHS.
Gordon provided a clear picture of where the state stands in the fight with COVID-19.
“We cannot tire because the virus will not either and the tragic reality is if we do not bring it under control, we are likely to see thousands of more deaths from COVID here in the coming months,” he says.
