MOREMDH’s Situation Update For COVID-19

Since the start of the outbreak in March, 255,592 people in Minnesota have been tested for COVID-19. Well over half — 19,441— have recovered and no longer require isolation.

Only 6,073 people were tested for COVID-19 on Sunday — a drop likely due to the temporarily closure of the MDH Public Health Lab as a result of unrest in St. Paul and surrounding areas following the death of George Floyd.

The state’s goal is to be able to process 20,000 tests a day, which is enough for any resident showing symptoms to get tested.

For most people, COVID-19 symptoms are mild, such as fever and coughing. However, the disease, which attacks the lungs, can be deadly to the elderly and those with underlying issues.
