There have been 10 more deaths from the novel coronavirus in Minnesota, according to an update from the state health department Saturday morning.

An additional 142 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed as well, bringing the statewide total to 2,213. The death toll from the virus is now at 121.

Of the latest deaths, eight of them were in Hennepin County, with one in their 50s, two in each of their 60s, 70s, and 80s, and one in their 90s. The other two were a St. Louis County resident in their 80s and an Anoka County resident in their 70s.

Of the new cases, 23 of them are in Nobles County, where there has been an outbreak at the JBS USA pork plant in Worthington. There are now 36 total cases in the county.

The figures are updated as of 4 p.m. Friday, which is the cut-off point of the daily reporting period. 

  • Confirmed cases: 2,213 (up from 2,071)
  • Deaths: 121 (up from 11)
  • Total hospitalized: 561 (up from 518)
  • Still hospitalized: 239 (up from 223)
  • Patients in intensive care: 111 (up from 106).
  • Patient recoveries: 1,118 (up from 1,066).

Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm says that all of Minnesota's COVID-19 fatalities have been confirmed with testing. If deaths are only listed as "suspected" or "probable" of having been caused by COVID-19, they aren't included in the death count

As of Friday, there have been 9 deaths in Minnesota where COVID-19 is "suspected" or "probable."

Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, headache, chills, or sore throat – should self-quarantine for at least seven days, or until going without a fever for 72 hours (without fever-reducing medication), according to guidance from the state health department.

Because of widespread community transmission, there are many more assumed cases of COVID-19 – possibly 100 times the number of confirmed cases – that cannot be formally diagnosed due to testing limitations.

The age range for confirmed cases has been as young as 4 weeks old to 104 years old, with a median age of 54, while the average age of persons who have died from the disease is 84.
