Coronavirus: 2 more deaths in Minnesota, 76 more confirmed cases

The latest figures have been provided by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Two more people have died and 76 more Minnesotans have tested positive for COVID-19. The new deaths reported are a 100-year-old Winona County resident from a congregate care setting, and a 89-year-old from Martin County. 

The total number of confirmed cases in Minnesota now stands at 865, which is reflective of data submitted to the Minnesota Department of Health through 8 p.m. Friday.

Seventy-six is the highest single day increase in confirmed cases, with the previous high being 73 on Mar. 30. It comes after 1,196 more tests were carried out on Friday.

There have now been 24 deaths from COVID-19 in Minnesota.

  • Confirmed cases: 865 (up from 789)
  • Total hospitalized: 180 (up from 156)
  • Still hospitalized: 95 (up from 86)
  • Deaths: 24 (up from 22)
  • Patients in intensive care: 42 (up from 40).
  • Patient recoveries: 440 (up from 410).

The number of COVID-19 tests performed by the Minnesota Department of Health and independent laboratories increased from 24,227 to 25,423. Of all tests conducted, 16,685 are from independent laboratories, including the Mayo Clinic

The 865 confirmed cases are likely only a fraction of the actual amount of COVID-19 in Minnesota, as state health leaders continue to say that there are likely far more people carrying the disease who have not been tested to confirm they have it. 

The age range for confirmed cases has been as young as 4 months old to 104 years old, with a median age of 48.
