(WXYZ) — Michigan now has 67,683 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 6,024 deaths.

That's up 446 cases and nine deaths from the day before.

The state also reported 7,380 probable cases.

COVID-19 cases have been increasing overall in Michigan for the past three weeks, Chief Medical Executive Dr. Joneigh Khaldun said.

Some areas are seeing higher numbers than others.

The state is continuing to increase testing, but she notes that increased testing is not the only reason for the increase in cases. The percent of tests done that are coming back positive slowly increased from 2 to 3 percent, which implies that the state is also seeing increases in cases because there is true spread.
