(4/27/2020) - Growth in the number of new coronavirus cases in Michigan slowed significantly over the weekend while the number of patients recovered more than doubled.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services reported just 432 new coronavirus cases on Monday, which is the smallest single-day increase since March 25.

The increases of 562 new cases on Saturday and 575 new cases on Sunday both remained much lower than average. Michigan now has a total of 38,210 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

The number of deaths also slowed with just 92 on Monday, pushing Michigan's total coronavirus death toll to 3,407.

Meanwhile, the state reported 5,105 more coronavirus patients statewide recovered over the last week. The total number of recovered patients reached 8,342 over the weekend, which is 22% of the total cases.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services considers a confirmed coronavirus patient recovered when they survive 30 days past the onset of symptoms.
