MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – One more Minnesota resident has died from COVID-19, raising the state’s total to 18.
The Minnesota Department of Health reports that confirmed cases continued to rise, with 53 new cases of of Thursday for a total of 742 since the outbreak began. But 373 of those patients have recovered.
Officials caution that those numbers are low because not everyone qualifies for testing. Seventy-five patients were hospitalized Thursday, a jump of 21 since Wednesday, with 38 in intensive care, up 11 from Wednesday. The median age of those who’ve died is 83.
