The coronavirus continues to spread in West Michigan, as health officials say that 2 new cases have been reported in Kent County, bringing the total number now to 7.

The news came Wednesday from Kent County Health Department Director Adam London, who says that the number of confirmed cases is most likely drastically lower than the number of people who are currently carrying the COVID-19 virus.

“I believe that the actual number of cases is much higher than what we are hearing, much higher than the actual test results, just because testing has been so limited.”

Michigan officials say the number of presumptive positive cases in Michigan currently is set at 110, with the number expected to continue to rise over the next several days.
