Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Saturday, June 20

Twelve more people died.

The Saturday COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that 12 more people have died from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Of the 12 deaths, 9 were residents of the long-term care or assisted-living facilities, continuing the trend of the vast majority of COVID-19 fatalities in the state coming from such congregate care settings. Two were in private residences, and one was in a homeless/sheltered situation.

Since the first death was confirmed Mar. 21, there have been 1,372 deaths, with 1,085 having been residents of congregate care.

The total hospitalized COVID-19 patients stands at 324, with 161 of those patients currently in ICU.

The latest 24-hour reporting period saw 16,815 tests result in 438 positives, though 2 have since been removed for an official count of 436.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 492,043 (up from 475,152)
  • Confirmed cases: 32,467 (up from 32,031)
  • Deaths: 1,372 (up from 1,360)
  • Still hospitalized: 324 (down from 339)
  • Patients in intensive care: 161 (down from 168).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 28,205 (up from 27,709)

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.
