For the first time in nearly four months, Michigan on Sunday recorded no Covid deaths.

The state did record 343 new cases, bringing the total to 65,876. The death toll since March 10 is 5,972.

As of Friday, the state reported 52,841 recovered patients, up 1,742 from a week earlier. 

Meanwhile, some states are seeing big spikes.

Florida recorded 11,443 new cases on Saturday and another 9,999 on Sunday. Texas reported a record 8,258 new cases on Saturday followed by 3,449 on Sunday, according to NPR.

The Washington Post reports:

The rolling seven-day average for daily new cases in the United States reached a high for the 27th day in a row, climbing past 48,000 on Sunday, according to The Washington Post’s tracking. Coronavirus-related hospitalizations rose to their highest levels to date in Arizona and Nevada

On Saturday, President Trump declared that “99 percent” of Covid cases are “totally harmless," a statement that drew wide criticism as demonstrably false.
