As the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services released the state's latest Coronavirus numbers, among the more than 200 new diagnosed cases within the past 24 hours was listed the first confirmed case in Genesee County.  However, shortly after the state released its updated data, a Genesee County official said there is no confirmed case in the county and said county officials are working with the state to find where the breakdown in communication occurred, Mid-Michigan Now reports.

Shiawassee County is now nearly surrounded by Coronavirus cases with 6 confirmed in Ingham County, 1 in Clinton County and 1 in Livingston County.  Oakland County has the state's most cases, with a cumulative total of 105.

There are no confirmed cases in Shiawassee County, however, ten of the cases reported today do not have a county assigned to them.

The state now updates totals each day at around 2pm.  We always publish the latest data here.

This story was updated to correct cumulative totals in Ingham and Oakland counties and to reflect the discrepancy between Genesee County and State of Michigan information.
