Roseau County has 605 Positive Cases; with 16 new cases reported today; 211 ACTIVE Cases; 394 having recovered (out of isolation) and 1 accumulated death.
Fifty-six more people have died from COVID-19 in Minnesota, according to Wednesday’s update from the Minnesota Department of Health. It’s a single-day high since the start of the pandemic, and by a wide margin. The previous high was 36.
The COVID-19 update also includes 4,900 more cases and the continued increase of people hospitalized with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
The 56 fatal cases brings Minnesota’s death toll from COVID-19 to 2,754. Of those, 1,898 were residents of long-term care facilities, including 38 of the 56 deaths reported Wednesday.
The 4,900 positive results were from a total of 24,677 completed tests, creating a daily test positivity rate of 19.85%.
Those completed tests were from 11,338 people. People are often tested more than once, so the test positivity rate when dividing positives by people tested is 43.21%.
The World Health Organization recommended in May that a percent positive rate (total positives divided by total completed tests) of below 5% for at least two weeks is necessary to safely reopen the economy. That 5% threshold is based on total positives divided by total tests.
According to Johns Hopkins University, Minnesota’s percent positive over the past seven days is 13.5%.
- Total tests: 3,194,842 (up from 3,179,872)
