LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan is reporting an average of 431 new daily COVID-19 infections over three days, up 47% from the same period a week earlier.
Cases have gone up in all but one state over the past two weeks, which health officials nationally have attributed to the fast-spreading delta variant. Michigan’s seven-day average, 332, is double what is was two weeks ago. Its two-week case rate, however, is better than in all but four states.
Just 256 adults were hospitalized with confirmed infections, a fraction of the peak of more than 4,000 in April.
