Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Monday, June 22

Total hospitalized patients increased from 322 on Sunday to 332 on Monday.

Monday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that four more people died from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. That's the lowest single-day total since early April, though it should be noted that deaths reported on Mondays tend to be lower due to reporting delays from the weekend. 

Minnesota's death toll from COVID-19 is now at 1,384. Of those 1,095 having been residents of congregate care, including two of Monday's newly reported fatalities.

Patients requiring treatment in an ICU ward continue to trend lower, with Monday's update at 156 patients. That's the lowest number of ICU patients since May 3, when there were 155 COVID-19 patients in intensive care. 

Total hospitalized patients, though, increased from 322 on Sunday to 332 on Monday. 

The latest 24-hour reporting period saw 8,774 tests result in 308 positives, though one has since been removed for an official count of 307.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 513,137 (up from 504,363)
  • Confirmed cases: 33,227 (up from 32,920)
  • Deaths: 1,384 (up from 1,380)
  • Still hospitalized: 332 (up from 322)
  • Patients in intensive care: 156 (down from 160).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 29,065 (up from 28,663)

There have been 32 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.
