LANSING, Mich. — The state of Michigan updated the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
The state reported 314 confirmed cases, making Saturday day 6 of the recent upward trend of COVID-19 cases.
There have been 19 new deaths due to COVID-19. Overall the virus has claimed 5,907 of the 63,009 patients infected with the virus in Michigan.
Just over 51,000 people have recovered from the virus. The CDC has two means to determine if a patient is recovered. In the first method patients are considered recovered 10 days after symptoms first started if their fever is gone without the help of medication and breathing issues including coughing and shortness of breath have subsided. Alternatively, doctors may also decide to use COVID-19 tests to determine recovery, in which case a patient whose fever and breathing issues have subsided would need to also have 2 consecutive negative virus tests to be considered recovered. Consult your doctor for the best course of action if you are recovering from COVID-19.
