According to several U.S. media on April 3, although the overall situation of the COVID-19 epidemic in the United States has eased, the Michigan epidemic is in a new round of outbreak.
On the 3rd, the number of new cases reported in a single day broke a record, reaching 8,413, 57 new deaths, and the positive rate of COVID-19 testing reached 17. 6%.
Experts warn that the surge in confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Michigan may repeat itself across the United States as states ease restrictions and usher in traditional holidays.
In early April, Michigan had more confirmed cases of COVID-19 than other states in the United States.
On February 21, Michigan had an average of 1,000 new confirmed cases per day. Recently, the average number of new cases per day has exceeded 5,600, and the number of intensive care indoor patients has also reached the highest level in nearly two months.
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said that although the state’s vaccine is still being promoted, the increased travel of residents and the lower wearing of masks have further aggravated the state’s epidemic, and the government will take restrictions according to the worsening of the epidemic to avoid intensive care. The ward is overloaded again.
