Wednesday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows a continuing decline in hospitalizations and deaths, with four new deaths reported and patients in the hospital with COVID-19 at the lowest levels in more than two months. 

Of the four new deaths – there were an additional two deaths where COVID-19 is suspected to be the cause – all four were people who lived in long-term care or assisted-living facilities, which are the types of residences which combine for 1,135 of Minnesota's 1,445 deaths from the disease.  

Minnesota's hospitals are now caring for 260 COVID-19 patients, the lowest that number has been since it sat at 240 on April 22, And there are now only 125 patients in intensive care, which is the lowest it has been since May 1. 

There are 426 new cases in Monday's report, 13 of which have been removed for an official tally of 413. Cases are removed for a variety of reasons, including patients being from another state and false positive test results.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 617,107 (up from 605,316)
  • Confirmed cases: 36,716 (up from 36,303)
  • Deaths: 1,445 (up from 1,441)
  • Still hospitalized: 260 (down from 270)
  • Patients in intensive care: 125 (down from 136)
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 31,947 (up from 31,601)

There have been 37 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.
