*Combined tri-county area ( including Detroit) number of deaths confirmed 3,817 which accounts for 79.1% 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 2,192 of the deaths in the state which are 45.5% 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.
