Michigan had a slight increase in serious and critical hospitalizations for coronavirus. The overall trend continues to be declining.
Between June 19 and June 22, the state reports 15 additional inpatients on ventilators, seven more inpatients in critical care and nine inpatients not in critical care. The numbers had been steadily declining since mid-April.
5 percent of active cases in Michigan are hospitalized, according to the State Health Department. That’s down from 17 percent in early April.
Gov. Whitmer has appealed to try to keep gyms closed in Michigan.
Whitmer’s gym closing order was overturned by a federal judge in west Michigan. Whitmer’s request for the stay to be reinstated was denied.
Gyms can reopen this Thursday if the latest order stands.
Gyms have been closed for months as a result of the governor’s executive order.
The governor’s office, in a statement, says “the court is playing a dangerous role it should not play: second-guessing and upending the data informed decisions that have saved thousands of lives in Michigan.”
