Tuesday's COVID-19 update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that nine more people died from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. 

Minnesota's death toll from COVID-19 is now at 1,393. Of those, 1,101 having been residents of congregate care, including six of Tuesday's newly reported fatalities.

There was a slight rise in the number of patients in the ICU, increasing by two to 158, while hospitalized patients not in the ICU rose for the second day in a row, from 176 to 181.

Hospitalizations are around half the rate they were at in mid to late-May however.

The latest 24-hour reporting period saw 7,261 tests result in 245 positives, though 3 have since been removed for an official count of 242.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests:  520,045 (up from 513,137 )
  • Confirmed cases: 33,469 (up from 33,227)
  • Deaths: 1,393 (up from 1,384 )
  • Still hospitalized: 339 (up from 332)
  • Patients in intensive care: 158 (up from 156).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 29,399 (up from 29,065)

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.
