LANSING, Mich. — There are now 4,135 deaths and 43,950 cases of coronavirus in Michigan, according to the latest numbers released from the State of Michigan on Monday afternoon.

That's up 86 deaths and 196 cases from Sunday, when there were 4,049 deaths and 43,754 cases.

15,659 have recovered from the virus, according to the state. Those numbers are updated every Saturday, with the latest numbers coming tomorrow. Recovery includes confirmed COVID-19 cases who are 30 days out from their onset, but the pool will expand as the pandemic continues.

While numbers are continuing to decline daily in southeast Michigan, the state said other areas are seeing a rise, especially in West Michigan.

On Thursday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed three new executive orders declaring a new state of emergency and state of disaster in Michigan until May 28 at 11:59 p.m.

Friday, she announced that several industry would resume business on May 7, including commercial construction, real estate and other jobs primarily done outdoors.
