LANSING, Mich. — The State of Michigan reported 5,937 new COVID-19 cases and 182 deaths on Thursday. That brings the total number of cases to 421,137 and the total number of deaths from COVID-19 to 10,395.

Only 50 of the deaths announced today occurred since the last report, as 132 of the reported deaths were identified during a review of vital records.
