A further 17 people have died from coronavirus in Minnesota, bringing the state's total to 869.

The number was a rise on the 10 reported Saturday, but a drop compared to the 32 and 33 reported on Thursday and Friday. Of those who died, 12 were in long-term care and one was in a group care setting.

The latest 24-hour testing period saw 728 positive cases from 8,471 tests. 

The number of patients hospitalized has dipped to 553 from 568 on Saturday, while the number of patients in ICU is also down, to 207 from 215.

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

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 197,964 (up from 189,493)
  • Confirmed cases: 20,573 (up from 19,845)
  • Deaths: 869 (up from 852)
  • Still hospitalized: 553 (down from 568)
  • Patients in intensive care: 207 (down from 215).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation:  14,115 up from 13,485)

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.

The state's maximum single-day testing capacity, as of earlier this week, is 13,704, with a goal of reaching a capacity of 20,000 per day by June. A spokesperson from Minnesota's Testing Command Center told Bring Me The News on Tuesday that daily testing totals would be higher if more people were going in for tests.

"People are choosing not to go in to get tested," said Terri Dresen, the command center's public information officer. "If you are remotely symptomatic, please go in. This is why we built the capacity."
