Deaths from COVID-19 in Minnesota have risen in consecutive days after a few days of lower totals, with the latest report Thursday from the state health department showing 29 more people have died from the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 (novel coronavirus). 

Testing in the reporting period, which set a single-day high of 9,904 laboratory tests, resulted in 403 positive results. 

Thursday's report also shows a drop in the number of COVID-19 patients in intensive care, dipping from 254 Wednesday to 244. The overall hospitalizations, which includes ICU patients, also dropped from 537 to 512 – the lowest its been since mid-May. 

Coronavirus in Minnesota by the numbers:

  • Tests: 275,622 (up from 265,718)
  • Confirmed cases: 26,273 (up from 25,870)
  • Deaths: 1,115 (up from 1,086)
  • Still hospitalized: 512 (down from 537)
  • Patients in intensive care: 244 (down from 254).
  • Patients no longer requiring isolation: 21,490 (up from 21,169)

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.
