A single-day record 365 new coronavirus cases were confirmed Monday by the Minnesota Department of Health, bringing the total number of positive COVID-19 tests since March 6 to 4,181. The previous single-day high was 261 on April 25. 

Of those positive tests, 301 patients have died – an increase of 15 from Monday's update. More than 1,900 patients have recovered from the virus.

There were 2,561 tests conducted in the 24 hours that ended 4 p.m. Monday, which comes amid a ramp-up of the state's testing capability and as such we're seeing higher numbers of cases. It's the sixth straight day the state has conducted at least 2,200 tests.

A collaboration between Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota is expected to have the state testing 20,000 patients per day within 2-4 weeks. Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said last week not to be surprised if the number of confirmed cases in a single day reaches 1,000 as testing is rolled out.

  • Confirmed cases: 4,181 (up from 3,816)
  • Deaths: 301 (up from 286)
  • Total hospitalized: 912 (up from 861)
  • Still hospitalized: 314 (up from 292)
  • Patients in intensive care: 120 (down from 122).
  • Patient recoveries: 1,912 (up from 1,842).

Hennepin County has had 193 deaths from 1,524 confirmed cases to lead the state, but the second-leading county for positive tests is Nobles County, which has seen its case total leap to 477 from an outbreak at a now-closed JBS pork plant in Worthington.

Because of widespread community transmission, there are many more assumed cases of COVID-19 – possibly 100 times the number of confirmed cases – that thus far have not been formally diagnosed because of testing limitations.

The age range for confirmed cases has been as young as 4 weeks old to 109 years old, with a median age of 51, while the average age of persons who have died from the disease is 83. The youngest person to die from the disease in Minnesota was 44 years old.
