The county health department urges caution when interpreting charts and data. Current weekly data, for example, will look less significant because the week hasn't concluded. There are sometimes delays in recording and charting data.

In today's state report, Michigan reported 102 deaths bringing the total to 5,017. Today's count was inflated by the thrice-weekly review of death records.
