The number of confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Michigan has risen to 295,177 as of Friday, including 8,377 deaths, government officials said.
Friday’s update presents 9,779 new cases and 53 additional deaths. On Thursday, the state reported a total of 285,398 cases and 8,324 deaths.
The update represents the highest total for a single day in Michigan with 1,263 cases. On November 1
New COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise in Michigan. Testing has increased in recent weeks, with more than 45,000 diagnostic tests per day, but the positive frequency has increased to more than 13% in the last week. Hospitalizations have increased steadily over the past five weeks, including improvements in critical care and ventilator use.

Michigan’s 7-day moving average for everyday use was 7,025 on Thursday, the highest ever. The average mortality for 7 days is 70, the highest since May. The mortality rate in the country is 2.9%. The state also reported “active cases”, which numbered 137,000 on Thursday, near its highest estimate. More than 138,800 have recovered in Michigan.
According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 4.4 million have recovered in the United States, with more than 11.7 million cases reported across the country. More than 252,800 have died in the United States
Worldwide, more than 57.1 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 1.36 million have died, according to Johns Hopkins University. The real numbers are certainly much higher due to limited tests, the different ways in which nations count the dead, and the deliberate underestimation by some governments.

How COVID-19 is distributed
Spread from person to person
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person.
- Between people who are in close contact with each other (within about 6 feet).
- By respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouth or nose of people who are nearby, or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Can anyone spread the virus without being sick?
- It is believed that people are most contagious when they are most symptomatic (most sick).
- Some spread may be possible before people show symptoms; there are reports of what is happening to this new coronavirus, but it is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
It is spread by contact with contaminated surfaces or objects
It is possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object on which there is a virus and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads.
How easily the virus spreads
How easily the virus spreads from person to person can vary. Some viruses are highly contagious (spread easily), such as measles, while other viruses do not spread as easily. Another factor is whether the spread is maintained by spreading continuously without stopping.
Prevention and treatment
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent disease is to avoid exposure to this virus. As a reminder, however, the CDC always recommends daily preventive action to prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover the cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces with a simple spray or cleaning cloth at home.
- Wear a mask or face cover when in a public place.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the toilet; before meals; and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
