Michigan's COVID-19 hospitalization and case rates have increased for the first time  after declining for the last five consecutive weeks, according to totals released late Tuesday by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

The state added 14,353 cases and 174 deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, including totals from the previous five days. Michigan reported an average of about 2,050 cases per day over the last seven days, a 15% increase of from 1,780 cases per day a week prior.

On June 21, the state said it had added 10,681 cases and 69 deaths from the virus in the previous week.

On Monday, the state reported that 696 adults and 15 pediatric patients were hospitalized with confirmed infections, a slight increase from 681 adults and 18 children last week.

Inpatient records were set on Jan. 10, when 4,580 adults were hospitalized with COVID-19. 

On Monday in Michigan, about 6.2% of the state's hospital beds were filled with COVID-19 patients, and there was an average of 1,057 emergency room visits related to COVID-19 per day in the state as of Monday. That compares with 24% of hospital beds being full and 2,889 daily emergency room visits due to the virus in the first week of January.

Between June 17-23, about 12.4% of Michigan's COVID-19 tests returned positive. 

All Metro Detroit health departments are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines that recommend indoor masking for public settings and K-12 schools as the rate of infection has grown from "medium" to "high."

Tuesday’s additions bring the state's overall totals to 2,606,431 cases and 36,918 deaths since the virus was first detected here in March 2020.
