Number of "recovered" COVID-19 cases leaps in Michigan

There's been a big jump in the number of Michiganders who've recovered from COVID-19.

To identify people who have recovered, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reviews vital records statistics to identify any laboratory confirmed COVID-19patients that are 30 days or more out from their onset of illness.

The numbers are updated weekly.  

This week, state health department officials say 3,237 Michiganders are officially “recovered” from COVID-19. A week ago the number was only 433.  

Overall, Michigan has nearly 30,791 confirmed COVID-19 cases. 

2,308 people have died.
