As Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, state medical executive, said in a press conference earlier this morning, clearly now the country continues to see more than 1,000 new cases every day. Much of that can be attributed to the expansion of testing capabilities.
“The testing capacity has grown significantly, even in the past 10 days,” Said Khaldun. “On March 25, Michigan reported around 9,000 cumulative tests for the corona virus. Ten days later, on April 4, we reported more than 40,000 cumulative tests. At least 15 laboratories in the state can now run this test as opposed to one about a month ago, our state laboratory. “
“Based on our preliminary data, we see it [the virus] “It seems to have an impact on the larger minority population, with 33% of cases and 40% of deaths occurring in African-Americans,” Dr. Khaldun earlier on Monday.
Michigan has also recently begun to release data to show cases by race and ethnicity, the only state in the country to do it.
“We do not fully understand the scope of how COVID-19 impacts each community and we will continue to track and analyze this data,” added Dr. Khaldun

For most people, coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that disappear in two to three weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems are among those who are prone to more severe diseases, including pneumonia. Most people recover.
To protect yourself, wash your hands well and often and keep them away from your face. And if you go public to buy staples or recipes, it is recommended that you wear some kind of face covering. Asymptomatic people can spread the disease unknowingly.
