(WXYZ) — There are 512,751 total cases of COVID-19 and 13,094 total deaths in Michigan, the state reported Thursday.

That's an increase of 4,015 cases and 176 deaths from the day before. The state noted that 138 deaths announced Thursday were identified during a Vital Records review.

Cases have dropped for the sixth week in a row; the current daily case rate remains more than two times the rate from early October.

However, officials said the state is not expecting to see the continued decline that we have seen in recent weeks.

As of Dec. 30, 363,611 people have recovered from the virus, according to MDHHS.

More than 337,000 vaccines have been distributed throughout the state, and more than 86,626 vaccines have been administered to Michiganders so far.
