LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) - July’s surge in coronavirus cases around Michigan slowed somewhat on Thursday with fewer than 500 new cases.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported 446 new cases of coronavirus Thursday. That remains about double what the state reported at the lowest point of the pandemic in mid-June, but more than 150 fewer than the 610 new cases reported on Wednesday.

New cases consistently remained above 400 per day over the first week of July -- except for Fourth of July weekend -- after falling to fewer than 200 cases per day in June.

With Thursday’s 446 new cases, Michigan has a total of 67,683 confirmed cases of coronavirus. Nine deaths attributed to the illness were reported statewide Thursday, increasing the total to 6,024.

The Genesee County Health Department reported seven more coronavirus cases on Thursday, for a total of 2,285. But there were no deaths attributed to the illness Thursday, so that total remains at 263.
