MICHIGAN — Sunday afternoon, the state of Michigan reported 0 new deaths and 1,041 new cases of COVID-19 as of Sunday and part of Saturday.

It's important to note that today’s new cases include a portion of referrals that would have appeared in Saturday's daily count, but had not been processed at the time of Saturday’s report.

Michigan.gov's messaging system issues resulted in the delay of laboratory result referrals from Friday evening through Saturday morning.

The issue has been resolved and the back-logged referrals have been processed.

These numbers bring the death toll to 6,149 and brings the number of confirmed cases in the state to 78,019.

Of those, 55,162 have recovered. A person is considered to be recovered if it has been at least 30 days since symptoms started.
