Friday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that 25 more people have died from COVID-19, which brings the state's death toll since mid-March to 1,274.

The latest 24-hour reporting period included 13,361 diagnostic tests, which resulted in 490 positive results, 11 of which have since been removed for an official tally of 479.

Of the 1,274 official deaths, 1,015 have been residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities, including 22 of the 25 in Friday's report. 

The number of patients who are hospitalized, including in intensive care, continues to drop to their lowest totals since early May (May 4 when the total was 396 hospitalized patients).

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 395,202 (up from 381,841)
  • Confirmed cases: 29,795 (up from 29,316)
  • Deaths: 1,274 (up from 1,249)
  • Still hospitalized: 403 (down from 411)
  • Patients in intensive care: 191 (dow  from 196).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 25,028 (up from 24,870)

There have been 31 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.

Meanwhile, health officials are encouraging anyone who attended protests in recent days to go in for a COVID-19 test, and they recommend doing so whether you have symptoms or not.
