Here are Monday's COVID-19 figures for Minnesota

Monday's data is reflective of the latest reporting period, which was 4 p.m. Saturday through 4 p.m. Sunday.

Minnesota continues to see growth in the number of deaths and cases in the coronavirus pandemic, with the latest information released Monday morning by the Minnesota Department of Health revealing another 6,001 tests, 705 laboratory-confirmed cases and nine deaths. 

The first death from COVID-19 was reported in by state health officials March 21. In the 58 days since, there have been 731 deaths from the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, better known as the new coronavirus. 

Reporting on Mondays has historically shown a dip in the number of confirmed cases and deaths, which the Department of Health has confirmed to Bring Me The News as being a result of a lag in reporting from over the weekend. 

Nonetheless, the past week saw the number of deaths from COVID-19 drop for the first time since the pandemic arrived in Minnesota.

But while the nine deaths reported today represents a drop compared to last Monday – the number of COVID-19 patients currently in the ICU has risen.

As of the latest available update (4 p.m. last Friday), 38.3 percent of Minnesota's maximum ICU capacity (991 of 2,588 ICU beds) were in-use. Of the ICU beds occupied, 229 are COVID-19 patients. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 156,606 (up from 150,605)
  • Confirmed cases: 16,372 (up from 15,668)
  • Deaths: 731 (up from 722)
  • Still hospitalized: 488 (up from 487)
  • Patients in intensive care: 229 (up from 221).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 10,764

Patients who no longer require isolation no longer includes patients who have died.

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.

Hennepin County has had 467 deaths from 5,409 confirmed cases to lead the state. Other counties to exceed 1,000 cases include Stearns County (1,740), Ramsey County (1,625), Nobles County (1,387).
