(Sunday - December 20, 2020) - The number of Covid-19 infections and the number of deaths declined in Dickinson County during the past week, for the third week in a row.  If the area is able to avoid another big holiday surge over Christmas and New Year, the area may be past the worst of the pandemic.

State-wide there was a slight drop in this week's figures, compared to last week's numbers.   In Michigan, a total of 28,072 new cases were confirmed.  That's down from the 35,744 cases discovered during the same period a week ago.   That brings the State's current total to 458,852.  During this same period, Michigan's death count increased by 799, to 11,461.  Last week there were 808 deaths reported.

Wisconsin saw 23.161 new cases, down from 24,630 new infections the week before.  Wisconsin has now recorded a total of 457,177 confirmed Covid-19 infections.   During the past week Wisconsin recorded 426 new deaths.   That number is actually up quite a bit from the 289 new deaths reported the week prior.  A total of 4,417 Covid deaths have now been reported in Wisconsin.

In the Upper Peninsula, a total of 37new deaths were reported during the past week, though only three of those occurred in Dickinson County.   The U.P. recorded a  total of 674 new Covid infections detected during the past week.
