Michigan adds 1,028 cases, 14 deaths from COVID-19 in 4 days

As children ages 12-15 in the state became eligible for the Pfizer vaccine in May, the increase in the population decreased the percentage of the population vaccinated to about 57%. As of Monday, 62.7% of Michigan residents over age 16 had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Whitmer recently unveiled a $5 million initiative offering college scholarships and cash prizes to Michigan residents who have gotten their COVID-19 vaccine, saying the program will save and change lives.

The weekly record of 808 deaths was recorded in mid-December. The weekly record of 50,892 cases was set Nov. 15-21. The second highest weekly total was 47,316 Nov. 22-28.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer in April announced the “MI Vacc to Normal” plan tying future COVID-19 restrictions to the percentage of residents who have received their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine. The state lifted its remaining COVID-19 restrictions June 22 after rolling back many others, including indoor and outdoor capacity limitations. Last week, the state added 1,531 cases and 47 deaths from the virus.

Statewide positivity has increased from 1.3% to 2% in the last two weeks. Detroit, Saginaw and Lansing are experiencing the fastest growth in COVID-19 cases. Michigan has the 15th-lowest case rate and 21st-highest death rate over the last week in the United States, according to the CDC’s COVID data tracker.

Michigan’s latest data Officials are warning of the highly-transmissible Delta variant after outbreaks associated with gymnastics facilities. About 23% of all cases were in ages 12 to as young as 5 years old.
