Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Sunday, September 20

The latest figures from the Minnesota Department of Health.

Two more deaths are included in Sunday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health, while almost 1,300 positive cases have been confirmed.

One of the two newly reported deaths were residents of long-term care facilities, with the death toll from the virus now at 1,960.

Sunday's update includes 1,318 new positive tests for the coronavirus, 22 of which have been removed for an official count of 1,296 cases. Those positives are the result of 12,080 people tested, creating a 24-hour reporting period test positivity rate of 10.7%.

The positive test rate is lower from the perspective when the number of individuals producing positive tests (1,296) divided by total completed tests (22,553). In that case, the positivity rate is 5.7%.

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: 1,838,392 (up from 1,815,774 )
  • People tested: 1,303,475 (up from 1,291,395)
  • Positive cases: 90,017 (up from 88,721)
  • Deaths: 1,965 (up from 1,963)
  • Currently hospitalized: 248 (up from 241)
  • Patients in intensive care: 123 (down from 134)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 81,336 (up from 80,407)

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.
