Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Sunday, July 5

This update includes two days of data rather than the typical one day of reporting information.

Sunday's situation report features two days worth of reporting because of the holiday weekend. Typically, a daily update features the most recent 24-hour reporting period, so this update includes 48 hours of new data. 

Sunday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that five more people have died from COVID-19 in Minnesota.

Of the new fatal cases, all five of them were residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities, which typically serve as homes to those who are most vulnerable to severe symptoms of the disease. Of the 1,471 deaths in Minnesota, 1,155 were residents of congregate care facilities.

Minnesota's hospitals are now caring for 253 COVID-19 patients, a decrease from Friday's report (270), while the number of patients in the ICU remains idle at 132. 

There are 519 new positive cases in Sunday's report, seven of which have been removed for an official tally of 512. Cases are removed for a variety of reasons, including patients being from another state and false positive test results.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 674,015 (up from 645,172)
  • Confirmed cases: 38,136 (up from 37,624)
  • Deaths: 1,471 (up from 1,466)
  • Still hospitalized: 253 (down from 270)
  • Patients in intensive care: 132 (no change)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 37,617 (up from 32,347)

There have been 37 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.
