The number of confirmed coronavirus cases has jumped by more than 200 in the last 24 hours. The official statewide total as of Sunday afternoon stands at 1,035 confirmed cases, up from 787 cases the day before. 

Due to a lack of tests and too few testing locations, officials say there are likely many more existing cases yet to be confirmed.

Here is the breakdown by county (Detroit is counted separately from the rest of Wayne County).

  • Allegan -- 1
  • Barry -- 1
  • Bay -- 1

Of those infected, the state says there is an even 50-50 split between males and females.

Here's the breakdown of cases by age:
