LANSING, Mich. — Michigan reported 2,698 new cases of COVID-19 and 139 more deaths since Wednesday, according to the latest statistics from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

That includes 107 deaths identified through a vital records review.

This brings the total number of COVID-19 cases to 531,004 and the total number of deaths to 13,672 in Michigan.

As of Jan. 13, 415,079 people have recovered from the virus, according to the MDHHS.

More than 831,000 vaccines have been distributed throughout the state, and more than 368,000 doses have been administered to Michiganders so far.

In November, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and MDHHS Director Robert Gordon announced the 3-week pause which closed indoor dining, movie theatres, in-person learning at high schools and college and more.

That order was set to expire in early December, but Whitmer and Gordon announced a 12-day extension. The latest extension for restaurants will go through Feb. 1.
