Deaths because of COVID-19 in Minnesota reach 700 mark

The count from the previous week was 163, while the health department reported 151 coronavirus-related deaths during the week prior to that seven-day stretch.

The Minnesota Department of Health says there are now more than 15,000 confirmed COVID-19 cases around the state and an additional 22 reported deaths.

All but three of the deaths in the recent report occurred among residents of long-term care facilities, increasing the cumulative number to 568.

Daily case numbers by the state have tended to be lower on Mondays, due to lower testing and reporting activities over the weekends.

Stearns County is now up to 1,713 cases and 10 deaths.

The MDH says so far over 150,600 tests have been run statewide.

Currently, there are 487 people in the hospital and 221 in the ICU. MDH is now reporting that the number of patients who no longer need isolation represents individuals with confirmed COVID-19 who no longer need to self-isolate, including those who have died. As many as 80% of cases involve people with mild or no symptoms - which has fueled the pandemic because people are able to spread it before they know they are sick.
