Friday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that eight more people have died from COVID-19 in Minnesota. 

Of the new fatal cases, seven of them were residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities, which typically house those who are most vulnerable to severe symptoms of the disease. Of the 1,466 deaths in Minnesota, 1,150 were residents of congregate care facilities.

Minnesota's hospitals are now caring for 270 COVID-19 patients, an decrease of from 2,Thursday's report, though the number of patients in the ICU increased from 123 to 132.

There are 423 new positive cases in Friday's report, nine of which have been removed for an official tally of 414. Cases are removed for a variety of reasons, including patients being from another state and false positive test results.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 645,172 (up from 630,427)
  • Confirmed cases: 37,624 (up from 37,210)
  • Deaths: 1,466 (up from 1,458)
  • Still hospitalized: 270 (down from 274)
  • Patients in intensive care: 132 (up from 123)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 32,347 (up from 32,163)

There have been 37 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.
