Coronavirus: Little change in Minnesota's figures after Sunday's rise

The figures are accurate as of 4 p.m. Sunday.

There has been little change in Minnesota's COVID-19 figures, which follows a shorter reporting period on Sunday.

The Minnesota Department of Health says there have been no further deaths from the coronavirus between 8 p.m. on Saturday and 4 p.m. on Sunday.

It comes after the MDH provided data for a larger time period over the weekend – stretching from 4 p.m. Friday to 8 p.m. Saturday, which led to an additional 194 cases being confirmed as well as 6 deaths. 

With the latest results comprising a shorter time period, only 29 new cases have been announced, for a total of 1,650. However, had reporting been done through the typical window over the weekend, it's likely that Sunday's total would've been 109, not 194, with the additional 85 cases added on to today's 29 for a total of 114. Either way, the total stands at 1,650.

Of those 1,650 patients, more than half have since recovered from the virus.

Monday figures have typically been lower than other days too, owing to a lag of testing data from independent labs over the weekend.

  • Confirmed cases: 1,650 (up from 1,621)
  • Total hospitalized: 361 (no change)
  • Still hospitalized: 157 (no change)
  • Deaths: 70 (no change)
  • Patients in intensive care: 74 (no change).
  • Patient recoveries: 842 (no change).

Minnesota Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm clarified last week 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.

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.

The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says COVID-19 is widespread in Minnesota, echoing the belief that the MDH has expressed to Minnesotans for weeks. Because of widespread community transmission, there are many more assumed cases of COVID-19 that cannot be formally diagnosed due to testing limitations.

A health department expert said on Friday that the total number of cases may be up to 100 times as high as currently confirmed in Minnesota.

The age range for confirmed cases has been as young as 4 months old to 104 years old, with a median age of 52, while the average age of persons who have died from the disease is 88.
