The number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in Minnesota has jumped to 14, according to updated information released Friday at noon by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). 

That's five cases more than there were Thursday, and nine more than was confirmed on Wednesday. Here's a map showing the counties where the virus – that has sparked a global pandemic – are located. Two patients are hospitalized, Gov. Tim Walz said. 


"We've had an additional five cases confirmed, all of them so far with travel exposure," said MDH Commissioner Jan Malcolm, adding that there is "no evidence" of community transmission. 

Two of the 14 cases in Minnesota are currently hospitalized, including the person in their 30s from Anoka County who was listed as critical earlier this week.

As of March 13, approximately 555 patients have been tested in Minnesota.
