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.

In North and South Dakota, COVID-19 deaths per million are similar to rates in Michigan back in April - and are likely to continue rising.

November 12, 2020

Wisconsin and Michigan both included weekend backlogs in today's update resulting in very high state case counts.

October 19, 2020

Our daily update is published. States reported 944k tests, 47k cases, 34k currently hospitalized, and 464 COVID-19 deaths, with six states not reporting today: CT, KS, MI, MO, NH, RI.

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.
