Michigan is starting to see negative effects of reopening the economy.
The state recorded 891 new Covid cases Wednesday, the highest one-day figure since May. The state recorded four deaths. In addition to the 891 new cases, the state reported 158 probable cases.
The seven-day average is 566, the highest since May 20.
While the death rate remained flat, the rising number of case is reason for concern, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said.
Whitmer at a Wednesday afternoon press briefing emphasized the importance of wearing masks and unveiled a new video of coaches from the University of Michigan and Michigan State talking about the importance of masking up.
Michigan has a cumulative total of nearly 72,000 confirmed cases since March, a number that exceeds the population of West Bloomfield and is close to the number of people living in Waterford.
