There’s no way two ways about it: November has been a dreadful month when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic in Michigan.

At the end of October, the state had 178,180 confirmed COVID-19 cases, and 7,340 deaths. As of Monday, November 30, those numbers had shot up dramatically: to 360,449 confirmed cases, and 9,134 deaths.

The state added a combined 10,428 cases and 98 deaths over the past two days.

On average, more than 13% of people statewide who are tested for the virus now test positive. And more than 4,300 people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are now hospitalized throughout the state.
