City of Detroit and Wayne County are reported separately.

For consistency with previous outbreak reporting methodology, the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) has been added as a separate jurisdiction under the “Other” category. This has resulted in the reclassification of some confirmed cases previously indicated among county case counts.

Cumulative Number of Specimens Tested for COVID-19 – Last Updated 3/26/2020 14:00
  Lab Type Negative Tests Positive Tests Total Specimens Tested
  Commercial 929 40 970
  Hospital 5411 1965 7477
  Public Health 2822 611 3439
  Grand Total 9162 2616 11886

Notes:
This is a new reporting system and additional laboratories will be included over time.  Counts of specimens tested positive will not equal number of people with COVID-19. People may have more than one test or may have had their test from an out of state lab. 

Total samples tested includes test that were negative, positive, and inconclusive.
Commercial labs only includes data from LabCorp.
Public health labs include the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Bureau of Laboratories.
Counts represent the total specimens tested, not total patients tested. A patient can have more than one specimen tested, therefore the number of specimens tested may be more than the number of patients tested.
