Saturday's COVID-19 report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows another 30 deaths, bringing the state's death toll from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) to 1,026. 

Of the latest 30 fatal cases, 26 were residents of long-term care or assisted-living facilities. Of the 1,026 total deaths, 837 were residents of such facilities. 

The latest report, which represents all data submitted through 4 p.m. Friday, shows 659 new positive cases from 8,635 tests.

There are also 589 COVID-19 patients in the hospital, including 263 in intensive care.

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 242,508 (up from 233,873)
  • Confirmed cases: 24,190 (up from 23,531)
  • Deaths: 1,026 (up from 996)
  • Still hospitalized: 589 (down from 592)
  • Patients in intensive care: 263 (up from 259).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 17,864 (up from 16,930)

There have been 10 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.
