Gov. Whitmer to provide briefing on coronavirus today

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — At least 1,216 residents of nursing homes in Michigan have died from the new coronavirus, accounting for nearly a quarter of all COVID-19 deaths, the state health department said.

Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Director Robert Gordon said at a legislative hearing Wednesday that the number is incomplete because 65, or 13%, of facilities are not reporting to the state, including homes in the hard-hit metro Detroit area.
