The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services released the following statement about the report:
Complying with national standards, MDHHS considers a death as COVID-19 related to death. If the death is due to natural causes, a positive COVID-19 test is performed, and one of the following is true:
• Death occurs within 30 days of onset of COVID-19.
• If more than 30 days from the onset of death, the certified physician identifies COVID-19 as a contributing factor to the death.
MDHHS relies on physicians’ treatment decisions in determining whether death is associated with COVID-19.
