Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Thursday, June 25

The death toll in the state has now surpassed 1,400.

Thursday's situation report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that nine more people have died from COVID-19, though the numbers across the board remain mostly level from what they were in recent days. 

Of the nearly approximately 13,000 tests conducted in the latest 24-hour reporting period, 365 were positive, though 5 have since been removed for an official total of 360. 

The nine deaths included four people from private residences and five who lived in long-term care or assisted-living facilities. The death toll over the course of the pandemic in Minnesota is now at 1,406, with the majority of fatalities (1,107) being residents of congregate care facilities. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 542,696 (up from 529,643 )
  • Confirmed cases: 34,123 (up from 33,763)
  • Deaths: 1,406 (up from 1,397)
  • Still hospitalized: 336 (down from 340)
  • Patients in intensive care: 162 (up from 160).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 29,854 (up from 29,707)

There have been 35 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.
