(WXYZ) — There are 469,928 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 11,775 total deaths in Michigan, the state reported Wednesday.
That's up 3,443 cases and 70 deaths from the day before.
Additionally, there are 38,144 probable cases, the state reports. As of Dec. 18, 284,731 have recovered from the virus.
In November, Governor Gretchen Whitmer and MDHHS Director Robert Gordon announced the 3-week pause which closed indoor dining, movie theatres, in-person learning at high schools and college and more.
That order was set to expire in early December, but Whitmer and Gordon announced a 12-day extension. The latest extension for restaurants will go through Jan. 15, but could be lifted early if numbers continue to decline.
