Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Thursday, June 11

Hospitalizations are the lowest they've been since May 4.

Thursday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that 13 more people have died from COVID-19, which brings the state's death toll since mid-March to 1,249.

The latest 24-hour reporting period included 12,071 diagnostic tests, which resulted in 453 positive results, six of which have since been removed for an official tally of 447.

Of the 1,249 official deaths, 994 have been residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities.

The number of patients who are hospitalized, including in intensive care, continues to drop to their lowest totals since early May (May 4 when the total was 396 hospitalized patients). 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 381,841 (up from 369,795)
  • Confirmed cases: 29,316 (up from 28,869)
  • Deaths: 1,249 (up from 1,236)
  • Still hospitalized: 411 (down from 427)
  • Patients in intensive care: 196 (up from 193).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 24,870 (up from 24,675)

There have been 31 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.

Meanwhile, health officials are encouraging anyone who attended protests in recent days to go in for a COVID-19 test, and they recommend doing so whether you have symptoms or not.
