After a weekend with a high number of new coronavirus cases, Minnesota added another 625 on Monday.
The new cases raises the total number of Minnesotans who have been infected with the virus to 61,516 since the outbreak began. The Minnesota Department of Health on Monday also reported three more deaths — a patient in their 80s and another in their 90s from Ramsey County, and one in their 60s from Anoka County.
The total number of deaths in Minnesota rose to 1,660 on Monday. There are another 41 cases where COVID-19 is listed on a death certificate but a positive test has not been documented for the person.
Of the three new deaths, two lived at home, the third at a long-term care or assisted living center. The outbreak has hit such living centers hard, with 1,250 Minnesota deaths having died in them.
Other key stats in Monday’s report:
Monday’s number followed weekend figures that saw about 1,700 new infections in the state. The actual number of infections is likely much higher as the data only represents those who have been tested for the virus, state officials said.
