Coronavirus: 33 more deaths in Minnesota, hospitalizations and ICU use rising

The latest figures from the MDH.

COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 33 more Minnesotans, bringing the state's COVID-19 death toll to 932.

Of the latest deaths, 27 occurred in long-term care or assisted living settings, with 759 deaths in total coming in long-term care. Among those who died is a person in their 30s from Nobles County.

The latest report, which represents all data submitted through 4 p.m. Tuesday, shows 598 people hospitalized with COVID-19, and 260 patients currently in ICU – another daily high.

It comes amid wider concern over ICU capacity in the Twin Cities, where the majority of cases are being handled.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 216,532 (up from 209,898)
  • Confirmed cases: 22,464 (up from 21,960)
  • Deaths: 932 (up from 899)
  • Still hospitalized: 598 (up from 570)
  • Patients in intensive care: 260 (up from 258).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 16,314 (up from 15,523)

There has also been another death deemed "probably" to have been caused by COVID-19, bringing the total probable COVID deaths to 10.

These cases represent victims who never received a COVID-19 test, but for whom doctors believe within a reasonable degree of certainty that the virus caused their death.
