(6/25/2020) - The surge in coronavirus cases around Michigan continued Thursday with the highest increase of cases in nearly a month for the second day in a row.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported 353 new confirmed cases of coronavirus on Thursday, which is 30 higher than the 323 reported on Wednesday.

Wednesday's total was the first above 300 since the end of May. The increase moves Michigan's total to 62,306.

The higher daily increases in cases have been concerning for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who paused plans to move all of Michigan to Phase 5 of her six-part economic reopening plan this week.

In Genesee County, 12 more cases of coronavirus were reported Thursday for a total of 2,147. The county broke a five-day streak with no deaths by reporting one for a total of 259.

The Saginaw County Health Department reported only eight more confirmed cases of coronavirus and no deaths on Thursday for totals of 1,195 and 120.
