Here are Monday's coronavirus figures for Minnesota

The figures are up to date as of 4 p.m. Sunday.

A further 12 people have died from coronavirus in Minnesota, bringing the state's total to 881.

Of those who died, 9 were in long-term care and one was in a group care setting.

The latest 24-hour testing period, ending at 4 p.m. Sunday, saw 745 positive cases from 6,095 tests. 

There was also a big jump in the number of hospitalized and those in the ICU. The number of patients hospitalized has risen to 605 from 553, while there are 248 patients in the ICU, up from 207.

It comes amid wider concern over ICU capacity in the Twin Cities, where the majority of cases are being handled, with the Star Tribune reporting on Saturday that 95 percent of ICU beds in the metro are filled with patients battling COVID and other serious conditions.

The figures posted on Sundays and Mondays tend not to be reflective of the wider picture due to the reporting lag from over the weekend, which may be exacerbated this weekend by it also being Memorial Day.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 204,059 (up from 197,964)
  • Confirmed cases: 21,315 (up from 20,573)
  • Deaths: 881 (up from 869)
  • Still hospitalized: 605 (up from 553)
  • Patients in intensive care: 248 (up from 207).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 14,816 (up from 14,115)

There are also nine deaths likely caused by COVID-19. Those nine, identified as probable deaths, which 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.
