(WXYZ) — There are 508,736 total cases of COVID-19 and 12,918 total deaths in Michigan, the state reported Wednesday.

That's up 4,326 cases and 51 deaths from the day before.

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.

The state also reports that Michigan is showing continued decline in hospitalizations, but a slight rise in case numbers. The percent positivity rate reached a low of 8.2% on Dec. 27, 2020, but increased to 9.6% in its most recent seven-day average.
