Still having not reached the peak of the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, Monday's report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows another 10 people have died from COVID-19. 

The death toll from the virus since the first fatality was reported Mar. 21 has reached 1,050, while more than 19,000 people to have contracted the virus no longer need to be isolated, many of them fully recovering. 

It should be noted that Mondays typically see lower totals, which the MDH has attributed to a lag in reporting from over the weekend. It's also good news that the death toll on June 1 is well short of what the state's coronavirus model predicted (1,400 to 2,000). 

In the latest reporting period – 4 p.m. Saturday to 4 p.m. Sunday – a total of 6,073 diagnostic tests turned up 358 positive results. That's the lowest single-day total since April 27. 

But as has been the case for months, the key data point during the pandemic is the state's ICU capacity. For a fourth straight day, the number of hospitalized COVID-19 patients has decreased, dropping from 606 on May 28 to 549 on June 1. 

The number of patients in ICU has remained fairly stead, hovering around the 245-260 mark for the past week. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 255,592 (up from 249,519)
  • Confirmed cases: 25,208 (up from 24,850)
  • Deaths: 1,050 (up from 1,040)
  • Still hospitalized: 549 (down from 555)
  • Patients in intensive care: 253 (down from 257).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 19,441 (up from 18,695)

There have been 10 patients deemed to have "probably" died from COVID-19, though that total isn't included in the aforementioned death toll. Those 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.
