Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Monday, September 21

The latest figures from the Minnesota Department of Health.

Four more deaths are included in Monday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health, while more than 900 new positive cases have been confirmed.

Two of the four newly reported deaths were residents of long-term care facilities, with the death toll from the virus now at 1,969.

Monday's update includes 937 new positive tests for the coronavirus, 12 of which have been removed for an official count of 925 cases. Those positives are the result of 9,462 people tested, creating a 24-hour reporting period test positivity rate of 9.9%.

The positive test rate is lower from the perspective when the number of individuals producing positive tests (925) divided by total completed tests (16,938). In that case, the positivity rate is 5.46%.

The "tests completed" number is always higher than the "people tested" metric because some people get tested multiple times and those who test positive are only counted once, so it produces a less accurate positivity rate.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Total tests: 1,855,308 (up from 1,838,392)
  • People tested:  1,312,937 (up from 1,303,475)
  • Positive cases: 90,942 (up from 90,017)
  • Deaths: 1,969 (up from 1,965)
  • Currently hospitalized: 255(up from 248)
  • Patients in intensive care: 128 (up from 123)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 82,174 (up from 81,336)

There have also been 52 deaths where COVID-19 is listed by doctors as the "probable" cause, though it's not included in the official COVID-19 death toll.
