(WXYZ) — The State of Michigan reported 488 additional cases of COVID-19 and five additional deaths on Monday.

That brings the total number of cases to 78,507 and the number of deaths to 6,154. That doesn't include another 8,666 probable cases and 251 probable deaths. 57,502 have recovered from the virus.

The news comes as cases continue to rise in Michigan. On Sunday, the state reported more than 1,000 additional cases, but it included delayed lab result referrals from Friday night and Saturday morning. That means included in yesterday's number was a portion that would have shown up in Saturday's count.

There were no new deaths reported on Sunday, and it's the second time this month there were no new deaths reported.

Testing continues to be high, and on Saturday, a record number of people were tested. In all, 37,864 tests were administered.

Younger people are getting the virus more and more, with the 20-29 age group now having the second-most number of cases behind 50-59. The number of cases between the ages of 0-29 has gone up immensely in recent weeks.
