What to Know About Covid-19 and Detroit

The city has seen over 9,300 cases so far

Why do so few people seem to care that the Motor City is a Covid hotspot?

Data collected by the state government from March 11th through April 4th found there were 43,950 confirmed cases of Covid-19 across Michigan. The total death toll currently stands at 4,135 victims; as of Sunday there were 547 new cases and 29 deaths. Detroit alone has seen 9,394 infections and 1,097 deaths. Yet, once again, the city’s voice is absent on the national stage.
