Minnesota is going on nearly three weeks of consistently lowering COVID-19 hospitalizations, with Sunday's update from the state health department showing 322 patients inflicted with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus requiring hospital care, including 160 in ICU. 

Both the total number of patients in the hospital and those in ICU are lowest they've been since April 29, though Sunday's update did come with eight more deaths, bringing the statewide total from the outbreak to 1,380. 

Of those, 1,093 having been residents of congregate care, including all eight of Sunday's newly reported fatalities. 

The latest 24-hour reporting period saw 12,320 tests result in 461 positives, though eight have since been removed for an official count of 453.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 504,363 (up from 492,043)
  • Confirmed cases: 32,920 (up from 32,467)
  • Deaths: 1,380 (up from 1,372)
  • Still hospitalized: 322 (down from 324)
  • Patients in intensive care: 160 (down from 161).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 28,663 (up from 28,205)

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.
