Here is Minnesota's COVID-19 update for Wednesday, June 24

Numbers across the board remain fairly level compared to Tuesday.

Wednesday's situation report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows that five 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 9,600 tests conducted in the latest 24-hour reporting period, 304 were positive, though 10 have since been removed for an official total of 294. The five deaths included three people from private residences and two who lived in long-term care or assisted-living facilities. 

The death toll over the course of the pandemic in Minnesota is now at 1,397, which is still shy of the 1,400 the state's COVID-19 model projected there could be by the end of May. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 529,643 (up from 520,045 )
  • Confirmed cases: 33,763 (up from 33,469)
  • Deaths: 1,398 (up from 1,393)
  • Still hospitalized: 340 (up from 339)
  • Patients in intensive care: 160 (up from 158).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 29,707 (up from 29,399)

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.
