Michigan has seen a 12.5 percent drop in its coronavirus positivity rate over the past week, a sign of potential improvement in a state that has been hammered by a third surge of COVID-19 cases.

On Wednesday the state reported 483 infections per 100,000 people, down from 551.8 per 100,000 people last week, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

By Thursday, this rate had dropped to 449.2 infections per 100,000 people in the state.

Wednesday also marked the first time in nine days that coronavirus hospitalizations in Michigan dipped below 4,000, the same day the total number of cases surpassed the 800,000 milestone.

4. The Biden Team wouldn't send the requested
