Michigan once again set a new weekly record of confirmed COVID-19 cases with 16,362 reported through Friday and still an additional day to add to the count.

It’s the third consecutive week to break weekly case records, which health officials say indicates a surge of the virus in the state. It surpassed last week’s record of 13,129 confirmed cases and the 10,241 cases two weeks ago. Before the severe uptick this month, the previous weekly high was 9,768 set April 5-11.

Michigan added 3,168 new COVID-19 cases and 11 more deaths on Friday. The additions bring the state’s total number of cases to 174,338 and total deaths to 7,309.

Friday’s tally also nears Thursday’s record of 3,675 new cases in a single day. The previous high for daily cases was set less than a week prior, on Saturday when the state added 3,338 cases.
