**At the suggestion of a reader of these posts, I will also be combining Wayne, Oakland and Macomb County totals being that is the bulk of Metro Detroit.**

*Combined tri-county area ( including Detroit) number of cases confirmed 32,356 which accounts for 66.8% of the cases in the state.

*Combined tri-county area ( including Detroit) number of deaths confirmed 3,747 which accounts for 79.4% of the deaths in the state.

*Detroit and Wayne County lead the state with 18,389 cases or 38.0% of the total in the state.

*Detroit and Wayne County account for 2,156 of the deaths in the state which are 45.7% of the current total in the state.

The city of Detroit is in the County of Wayne so that is why they are combined here.
