This undated electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in February 2020 shows the Novel Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, orange, emerging from the surface of cells, gray, cultured in the lab. Also known as 2019-nCoV, the virus causes COVID-19. The sample was isolated from a patient in the U.S. (NIAID-RML via AP)

Hundreds of new health care graduates from Michigan State University are available to respond to the coronavirus outbreak.

State officials have made a desperate plea for health professionals to treat people as the number of virus cases rises each day.

MSU says the state has created a temporary license for nurses who usually first take a national exam.

Doctors from the colleges of Human Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine also can work ahead of their medical residencies.

The number of coronavirus cases reported statewide reached 7,615 with 259 deaths, including one death is Cass County.

A nursing home in Cedar Springs in Kent County says 31 residents and five staff members have COVID-19.
