Michigan reports a 2-day total of 6,283 new COVID-19 cases, 163 deaths Wednesday, Nov. 10

Michigan added 6,283 new COVID-19 cases for Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 9-10, although health officials noted that the number of cases is likely an underestimate due to delays in processing lab results.

In addition, the state reported a two-day total of 163 new COVID-19 deaths, including 75 deaths in the 48-hour period and another 88 that were late additions discovered through a routine review of vital records by the Michigan Department of Health and Human services.

In the past week, Michigan has reported about 3,613 cases and 43 deaths per day. Both are down from last week, although it’s unclear whether delays in lab processing will lead to an increase in daily cases in the near future.

Since the start of the pandemic, 1,166,517 cases of coronavirus have been reported and 22,521 confirmed deaths. In addition, the state has reported 153,207 probable cases and 1,506 probable deaths, where a doctor and/or antigen test judged it to be COVID-19, but no confirmatory PCR test, which detects the presence of a virus, was done.
