Current data quality grade
To help the public understand how well each state is performing, we have assigned each state a data-quality grade based on our assessment of the completeness of their reporting. Learn more

We calculate daily changes based on the data states report each day. Some states report new cases, tests, and deaths using other methods. Please consult official state data sources for more information. We chart “New tests” using different units across jurisdictions, because not all states and territories report tests in the same units. Learn more about total test units and see what we chart for each jurisdiction in our total tests documentation.
We do not have a complete dataset for every metric in every state. If we we have data for less than 30% of the past 90 days for a given metric, you’ll see a warning instead of a chart for that metric.
All the data for these charts is available for download. You can also review tabular national data on our US historical data page and data for each state and territory on the individual state or territory’s overview page.

Data as of November 19 2020
Michigan updates its Recovered metric weekly and does not update any data on Sundays.
Our source for Now hospitalized and Now in ICU data in Michigan generally updates on Mondays and Fridays only.
Michigan combines PCR and antigen tests in the total tests figure reported on the state's dashboard.
On October 29, 2020, Michigan experienced connectivity issues resulting in some cases that would have been reported tomorrow to be reported today. This is due to the fact that the state has a strict 10AM cutoff for daily data reporting. This means the daily increase in cases encompasses more than one day's worth of data.
On October 15, 2020, Michigan announced that due to a laboratory result processing slowdown, several cases that would normally have been included in the October 14, 2020 update were reported on October 15, 2020. The issue has since been resolved. Aa a result, cases reported on October 15, 2020 may not have been reported within the last 24 hour period.
As of July 7, 2020, Michigan updates its death figures three times a week after conducting reviews of death certificates. As a result, "new" deaths may not always reflect deaths in the past 24 hours.
On June 11, 2020, we updated our historical data from a spreadsheet provided by Michigan's Department of Health and Human Services in order to reflect the lab-reported dates of probable and confirmed cases and probable and confirmed deaths by date of death.
Since March 10, 2020, Michigan has reported each day's Positive and Negative tests (people) by county but has never totaled these metrics for the state. We add new Positive and Negative tests (people) values daily to a running sum and report the total.

October 11, 2020
When we add Detroit back into the equation, it reveals that 60% of Michigan’s COVID-19 deaths among Black people happened in Wayne County. The current reporting system obscures the true impact of COVID-19 within the county, and on the state’s Black population.
September 18, 2020
Tracking city-level data allows us to see that 48% of Black people who have died from COVID-19 in Michigan are from Detroit. But the decisions that individual jurisdictions make can obscure the scale of this impact.
