Delta, Dickinson and Gogebic Counties
in virus infections per 1,000 residents
(Saturday - October 09, 2021) - Michigan continues to record very high
figures for infection from both the Covid-19 virus and its variants.
On Friday, Michigan reported 8,409 new infections. This is a two-day number, representing a daily average of 4,205.
The State also recorded an additional 82 deaths, 40 of which represent additions made as the result of reviews of vital records.
State Health officials said on Friday that there is reason for cautious optimism, as both infections and deaths appear to be leveling off. They stress, however, that this is no time for Michiganders to let their guard down, as October often sees a rapid spread of various viruses.
