LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) - The number of coronavirus deaths has not exceeded 10 for a full two weeks in Michigan.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported just three deaths attributed to coronavirus on Monday after zero on Sunday and three apiece on Friday and Saturday. June 22 was the last time Michigan reported more than 10 coronavirus deaths.

Michigan now has 5,975 deaths attributed to coronavirus.

Genesee and Saginaw counties have not reported a death attributed to coronavirus in more than a week. The last coronavirus death in Genesee came on June 27 while the last coronavirus death in Saginaw County came on June 24.

The number of new coronavirus cases also fell below 300 statewide on Monday for the first time in nearly a week. The 297 newly confirmed cases on Monday is the fewest since 262 new cases were confirmed on July 1.

Newly confirmed cases typically slow on weekends due to labs working with smaller staffs to process fewer tests. Michigan now has 66,173 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
