The total number of confirmed COVID-19 infections now stands at just over 45,000 thousand cases according to the state of Michigan.
Lately, the daily number of new cases has been trending downward.
But in a briefing last week, the state’s top Medical Executive, Dr. Joneigh Khaldun noted an emerging concern.
“To date, the vast majority of cases have still been in Southeast Michigan,” Khaldun said. “However, while the rate of rise is slower in Southeast Michigan, we are seeing an increase in the rate of rise in other parts of the state, particularly in the Western part.”
