Michigan’s coronavirus deaths continue to decline
Only two people died from the coronavirus in Michigan on Wednesday as the state’s average COVID-19 death rate continues to decline. The state’s 7-day rolling average is 11 deaths per day.
Cases of COVID-19 infections are also on the decline in Michigan, with 204 new cases as of Wednesday. That comes after several days of fewer than 200 new cases per day.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer said the lower numbers are evidence that the state’s efforts to contain the spread of the virus have been effective.
“The data shows that very few states dropped their infection rates as low as Michigan has. Only Michigan and New York are on track to contain COVID-19,” said Whitmer.
Recent studies also show that Michigan’s response to the virus has been effective.
