LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Daily coronavirus cases in Michigan continue to rise, with nearly 3,000 new cases over a three-day-period. Fortunately, vaccines appear to be keeping the number of deaths down.

On Monday, Aug. 9, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported 2,720 new COVID-19 cases and 8 deaths.

State totals are now at 913,220 cases and 19,958 deaths.

Monday’s daily case count reflects Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, instead of the previous Sunday and Monday count. The MDHHS previously decided to stop updating data on Sundays due to low testing and staff on the respective day.
