For a second week now, Michigan records a decline in Coronavirus cases. Meanwhile, the state has vaccinated 54 percent of residents 16 and older.

The decline in numbers come after eight consecutive weeks of rising infections, The Detroit News reports.

On Saturday, the state recorded 1,825 new cases and 122 deaths. The number is far fewer than the 8,000 or 9,000 new daily cases the state saw not so long ago.

The number of vaccinated is quickly approaching the 55 precent benchmark set by the state that would allow in-person work, incuding in offices. That step would kick in two weeks after the milestone is reached.

Since the outset of the pandemic, Michigan has recorded 862,633 cases and 18,206.
