The death toll in Minnesota from COVID-19 is up to 2,008, with four additional deaths reported Sunday, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.
The Health Department reported another 1,077 confirmed coronavirus infections, taking Minnesota’s total cases to 96,734. The actual number of infections likely is much higher as the data only represents those who have been tested for the virus, state officials say.
Sunday’s reported deaths consisted of: an individual between 50-54-years-old, an individual between 75-79-years-old, an individual between 80-84-years-old, and an individual between 85-89-years-old. The deaths were in Anoka, Hennepin and Nicollet counties. One of the four was from a long-term care or assisted-living facility.
Of the state’s total deaths, 1,445 were long-term care or assisted living center residents.
There were 86,252 patients as of Sunday who have recovered to the point where they no longer need to be isolated.
A total of 7,493 patients with COVID-19 have been hospitalized in Minnesota with 2,095 in the ICU.
