While development continues on this site, the world has basically ground to a halt, thanks to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Or, SARS-CoV-2.
Fwiw... The virus is named 'corona' because of it's 'crown' shape, not after the tasty beer.
Across the U.S.
Around the globe.
Here is what's happening in Michigan.
Here's what's happening Friday:
- Henry Ford Health System treating 78 COVID-19 patients
- Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit) -- 56 patients
- Henry Ford West Bloomfield Hospital -- 11 patients
- Henry Ford Macomb Hospital -- 10 patients
- Henry Ford Wyandotte -- 1 patients
Update Saturday, March 21, 2020.
The number of confirmed coronavirus cases has jumped by more than 200 in the span of a day. The official statewide total as of Saturday stands at 787 confirmed cases, up from 549 cases the day before.
Due to a lack of tests and too few testing locations, officials say there are likely many more existing cases yet to be confirmed.

Detroit reported the highest number of new cases, adding 77 to its new total of 325. The city has also confirmed four deaths. Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties all added dozens to their totals as well.
Several counties that are less populated reported their first cases, including Allegan, Emmet, Gladwin, Roscommon and Grand Traverse.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) death toll in Michigan rose to nine Sunday, while the number of confirmed cases broke 1,000.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer issued a statewide stay-at-home order on Monday to fight the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Effective at 12:01 am on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, for at least the next three weeks, individuals may only leave their home or place of residence under very limited circumstances.
Okay... It's been a minute since our last update (because I don't like thinking about coronavirus), so let's take a look at what's going on.
The total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the state of Michigan is now 35,291 with total deaths at 2,977.
The state also reported that 3,237 patients have recovered from COVID-19 in Michigan.
The Michigan governor is expected to extend a stay-at-home order Friday that has been put in place to help stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Several other states have already extended stay-home measures into May, including Connecticut (May 20), Delaware (May 15), California, New York (May 15), Vermont (May 15), Virginia (June 10), Illinois (May 31) and Wisconsin (May 26).
Stay safe. Stay clean. Stay healthy.
