At least 1,111 Detroit residents have died due to complications related to Covid-19, Mayor Mike Duggan said today.
There are at least 9,449 cases of the virus in the city.
Of the roughly 17,000 tests performed so far, Duggan said that 27% of Detroit residents, and 26% of residents in neighboring suburbs have tested positive for coronavirus.
Duggan also said that budget cuts in the city, beginning at the upcoming end of the fiscal year, extending through June 30, 2021 will total $348 million. Most of that is dipping into Detroit’s reserves that it had developed after the recession, as well as cuts to its urban blight demolition program, Duggan said.
