Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Monday, June 29

The number of patients requiring hospital care continues to drop.

There are 10 more deaths from COVID-19 in Monday's situation report from the Minnesota Department of Health, which snaps an eight-day streak of reports featuring single-digit fatalities. 

Of the 10 newly reported deaths, two were jail/prison inmates, six were residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities, and two were from private residences. The state's death toll from the novel coronavirus is now at 1,435. 

COVID-19 patients requiring care in the hospital continues to drop in Minnesota, with Monday's update showing that ICU patients are down to 140 and total hospitalizations has dropped to 278.

There are 315 new cases in Monday's report, three of which have been removed for an official tally of 312. Cases are removed for a variety of reasons, including patients being from another state and false positive test results. The results were from just over 7,500 diagnostic tests. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 592,955 (up from 585,417)
  • Confirmed cases: 35,861 (up from 35,549)
  • Deaths: 1,435 (up from 1,425)
  • Still hospitalized: 278 (down from 288)
  • Patients in intensive care: 140 (down from 143)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 31,225 (up from 30,401)

There have been 35 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.
