The Minnesota Department of Health has released the latest COVID-19 numbers and the good news was there was only one death in the last 24 hours.  Polk County still only has one positive test.   Polk County Public Health reminds us that “Not all cases of COVID-19 are tested, so it is not a representative of the total number of people in Minnesota who have or had COVID-19. Totals reflect only the results from laboratory testing. All data are preliminary and may change as cases are investigated.”

Minnesota Commissioner of Health Jan Malcolm today announced state health officials confirmed a total of 194 positive COVID-19 tests, equaling 1,621. The total reflects data that is current as of 8 p.m., April 11.

County of residence data was not immediately available for five cases. 

A total of 361 COVID-19 cases have been hospitalized in Minnesota to date. Currently 157 cases are hospitalized, with 74 in intensive care. 

The total includes an additional six COVID-19 deaths, for a new statewide total of 70. The age range and county of residence of today’s announced deaths:

“We can never forget that these numbers are in fact beloved family members, friends and neighbors who are mourned,” Commissioner Malcolm said. “We express our condolences and our commitment to continuing the work of protecting Minnesotans the best we can. It is very important for all Minnesotans to do their part in that effort by following social distancing guidelines and other public health recommendations.”
