LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – The State of Michigan has confirmed 19,535 new COVID-19 cases and 50 deaths this week.

That averages out to 2,791 cases per day.

Michigan has now seen a total of 2,547,366 total cases and 36,407 deaths.

Ingham, Jackson, Eaton and Clinton Counties are all in the “medium” transmission level.

Around 67.2% of Michiganders have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, putting the state 2.8% away from its goal of 70%.

With the COVID-19 case increase, the Biden administration went to court to appeal the federal ruling that the mask mandate should be brought back.

Some Michigan politicians are not to keen on the Biden administration’s action.

I led the fight against Biden’s unconstitutional workplace vaccine mandate and he should end this appeal before he wastes more taxpayer dollars on another losing lawsuit. Biden’s policies are out-of-touch and while he wants to force everyone to mask, the truth is he is having the wool pulled over his eyes by unelected bureaucrats who want unlimited power over Americans’ lives.”
