New cases per capita

Another metric used by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to access coronavirus risk is daily new cases per capita.

This measure calculates the average number of new cases per 1 million inhabitants.

Levels for each county:

  • Level E (over 150 cases per million): five counties, highest to lowest: Keweenaw, Houghton and Newaygo.
  • Level D (70 to 149 cases per million): 36 counties – Washtenaw, Lapeer, Cass, Missaukee, Ottawa, Kent, Berrien, Sanilac, Ionia, Lenawee, Calhoun, Ontonagon, St. Joseph, Wexford, Eaton, Ingham, Cheboygan , Mecosta, Barry, Van Buren, Bay, Shiawassee, Gogebic, Presque Isle, Tuscola, Saginaw, Jackson, Hillsdale, Macomb, Kalamazoo, Grand Traverse, Livingston, Allegan, Isabella and Roscommon.
  • Level C (40 to 69 cases per million): 28 counties –Oscoda, Huron, Oakland, Wayne, Benzie, Monroe, Emmet, St. Clair, Clinton, Alpena, Genesee, Branch, Leelanau, Montcalm, Crawford, Menominee, Arenac , Ogemaw, Clare, Muskegon, Montmorency, Iosco, Oceana, Osceola and Alcona.
  • Level B (20 to 40 cases per million), 12 counties: Mackinac, Baraga, Otsego, Midland, Gladwin, Delta, Antrim, Mason, Dickinson, Gratiot, Charlevoix and Chippewa.
  • Level A (7 to 20 cases per million), five counties: Kalkaska, Alger, Iron, Marquette and Lake.
  • Low (less than 7 cases per million): Manistee, Luce and Schoolcraft.

Here’s an online database that allows readers to see the number of new coronavirus cases in the past seven days compared to the previous week, as well as the number per capita that adjusts for the population. Arrows indicate whether the total number of new cases reported in the past seven days has increased or decreased from the previous seven days.

Current scores are based on new cases reported from February 13 to 19. The map below is shaded based on the six levels of state. Arrows indicate whether the total number of new cases reported in the past seven days has increased or decreased from February 6-12.

Below are online databases that allow readers to search county level data for each of the past 30 days.

Overall score

Six of Michigan’s eight MI Start regions are now at a lower risk level after three months at the highest level the state uses to assess coronavirus risk.

The Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Saginaw, Traverse City and Upper Peninsula areas were downgraded from Level E to Level D last week. This leaves the Lansing and Jackson regions still at level E.

In assigning risk scores, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services examines factors such as new cases and deaths per capita, test positivity rates, number of tests administered, and visits to medical services. emergency for COVID-19 symptoms.

The scale used by the MDHHS has six levels: “low” plus the AE levels. As of November 4, all eight MI Start regions in Michigan were at level E.

(State MI Start Districts: Region 1 is Region Detroit; Region 2 is Grand Rapids; Region 3, Kalamazoo; Region 4, Saginaw; Region 5, Lansing; Region 6, Traverse City; Region 7, Jackson, and Region 8, the Upper Peninsula.)

Cases daily it was reported to the State

The first is a graph showing new cases reported to the state each day for the past 30 days. This is based on when a confirmed coronavirus test is reported to the state, which means the patient first became ill a few days ago.

You can call up a chart for any county and you can hover your cursor over a bar to see the date and number of cases.

(In a few cases, a county reported a negative (decrease) number of new daily cases, as a result of retroactive reclassification by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. In these cases, we subtracted the cases from the date previous and put 0 in the report date.)

The following graph below shows new cases over the past 30 days based on symptom onset. In this graph, numbers for the most recent days are incomplete due to the time lag between people getting sick and getting a confirmed coronavirus test result, which can take up to a week or more.

More localized maps

Below are two maps created by the EpiBayes research group at the University of Michigan Department of Epidemiology, which has access to sub-county data collected by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The interactive maps break down the state into 10-kilometer hexagons to provide a more localized overview of where coronavirus cases are occurring. You can Click here to access the research project website.
