Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Wednesday, June 10

The assumed COVID-19 deaths jumped by 20 in the new reporting period.

This transmission electron microscope image shows SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, isolated from a patient in the U.S. Virus particles are shown emerging from the surface of cells cultured in the lab. The spikes on the outer edge of the virus particles give coronaviruses their name, crown-like.

Wednesday's coronavirus update from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that 19 more people have died from COVID-19, which brings the state's death toll since mid-March to 1,236. 

Another development, however, is that the number of probable COVID-19 deaths has jumped from 11 to 31. Probable deaths are not included in the official death toll, though COVID-19 is listed on a death certificate without the patient testing positive for the virus. 

The latest 24-hour reporting period included just shy of 9,000 diagnostic tests, which resulted in 352 positive results, six of which have since been removed for an official tally of 346. 

Of the 1,236 official deaths, 984 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. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 369,795 (up from 360,991)
  • Confirmed cases: 28,869 (up from 28,523)
  • Deaths: 1,236 (up from 1,217)
  • Still hospitalized: 427 (down from 455)
  • Patients in intensive care: 193 (down from 199).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 24,675 (up from 24,221)

There have been 11 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.
