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.
