There have now been 111 deaths in Michigan, new numbers show.
MICHIGAN — In a staggering jump, Michigan saw nearly 1,000 new coronavirus cases across the state between Friday and Saturday, with 19 new deaths, bringing the total to 111.
A total of 993 new cases were reported, the largest single-day jump since the outbreak was reported in Michigan.
The largest concentration of cases is still in southeast Michigan: Wayne County (including Detroit) has 2,316 confirmed cases and 46 deaths; Oakland County has 1,018 cases and 31 deaths; and Macomb County 534 cases and 17 deaths.
On Saturday, the White House announced that President Donald Trump finally approved a major disaster declaration for Michigan, which provides more money to fight the ongoing crisis in the state.
The U.S. surgeon general says the situation in Detroit, a national “hot spot” for cases of the new coronavirus, will worsen next week.
