The age range for confirmed cases has been as young as under 1-month-old to 109 years old, with a median age of 44. The median age of those who have died from the disease is 83. The youngest person to die in Minnesota was a 30-year-old.

Testing has increased substantially over the past two weeks, but the numbers released each day by the state health officials may not represent the full load of tests because some healthcare facilities are not reporting negative results. State leaders have said that testing 5,000 people per day is necessary to reopen the economy, but the ultimate goal is 20,000 diagnostic tests per day.
