LANSING, Mich. (WJRT) - Michigan has not seen more than 10 deaths attributed to coronavirus for the first third of August.

Genesee and Saginaw counties haven’t reported any coronavirus deaths in over a week.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported 557 new cases of coronavirus statewide Monday, increasing the total to 87,960. The number of new cases has remained below 700 since reaching a 10-day high of 762 on Friday.

The number of deaths attributed to coronavirus in Michigan increased by eight on Monday to a total of 6,257.
