MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Department of Health says that the total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state has reached 865, with more than 25,423 people tested since the outbreak began.
Still, experts caution that the true number of people who’ve contracted the virus is likely much higher, as testing has been limited.
Of those currently battling COVID-19, 95 are in the hospital and 42 patients are in intensive care beds.
Two more people have also died.
On the other hand, the number of people who no longer need to be in isolation is now 440, health officials say.
Starting Saturday, long-term care facilities with COVID-19 cases will be identified. Previously, health officials said it would not release that sensitive data as it could be in violation of state and federal privacy laws.
At 11 a.m., the state released the following information:
