Michigan COVID-19 cases increase to 334
The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced the state now has 334 cases of COVID-19.
On Wednesday there were 85 cases in the state.
The large increase is due to test results provided from commercial and clinical labs that recently began providing testing.
“We are pleased to announce that we are now able to provide testing results from hospitals and other entities outside of our state laboratory,” said Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, chief medical executive and chief deputy for health. “We knew there were additional people in Michigan with COVID-19 that had not yet been tested. This emphasizes the need to continue to practice social distancing and other community mitigation practices to help slow the spread of this disease.”
