Hospitalizations

Through June 24, the number of people with COVID-19 hospitalized in Minnesota was 390 (down from 393 on June 23). Of those hospitalized, 34 people are in intensive care (up from 33) and 356 are in non-ICU care (down from 360).

Which variants are circulating in wastewater?

The next update is expected at some point Friday, July 1.

According to the latest wastewater data from the Metropolitan Council, which covers two-thirds of the Twin Cities metro and serves about 2 million people, the most prevalent strain of coronavirus from samples tested June 14-20 was BA.2.

When breaking it down by subvariant, BA.2.12.1 made up 43% of all samples and BA.4 (18%) and BA.5 (36%) accounted for about 55% of samples tested. 

"BA.5 will likely replace BA.2.12.1 as the dominant variant in Metro Plant wastewater in the coming weeks," the Met Council predicts.
