DETROIT – Coronavirus cases are rising in the United States, including in Michigan.

Residents should be aware of the latest prevention and COVID-19 spread information, regardless of their native language. In Metro Detroit, we have large Spanish and Arabic speaking populations, for instance.

The state of Michigan has offered resources in a few different languages to help those who aren’t primarily English speakers or readers.

In the state of Michigan, as of March 13, 554 coronavirus (COVID-19) cases were referred for monitoring to date, with 172 people under active monitoring for the virus — 120 tests have returned negative.

That’s according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). The state announced an addition 10 cases on Thursday, bringing the total number of confirmed positive cases of COVID-19 to 12 in the state of Michigan.
