Michigan experience Increase in COVID-19 casesMany people worry that the death toll will rise in the coming weeks.
Some new research suggests that the number of deaths from COVID-19 may not rise as sharply as in the spring.
up to dateCoronavirus cases in Michigan reach 164,274; death toll is now 7,239
Those who observe the number have noticed the case fatality rate-the number of deaths is Cases diagnosed with COVID-19 -It has fallen since the pandemic began. Some people believe that this can be explained by more tests and diagnoses of young, healthy people.
However, two new papers (one published in “Intensive Care Medicine”
The first study investigated more than 12,000 hospitalized cases in England. They found that the death rate was highest in late March. In the intensive care unit, the death rate for COVID-19 patients was 41%, while the death rate for similar patients during the same period was much lower, at 21%.

The second study investigated more than 5,000 COVID-19 patients admitted to the New York hospital system. Researchers found that between March and August, the hospitalized patients were younger and had fewer other medical problems. However, when they adjusted for age and other medical issues, the mortality rate still dropped by an average of 18%.
Both papers show that improving treatment options, updating therapies, and reducing hospital capacity for better care are reducing mortality.
It’s worth noting that the authors of these two papers both pointed out that although they found that the mortality rate has declined over time, it is still unacceptably high, and if the hospital system becomes too high again, the mortality rate will definitely rise.
