Wednesday coronavirus update: 66 new deaths, 2,019 additional infections

The death toll in Minnesota from COVID-19 reached 5,262 on Wednesday, with an additional 66 deaths.
The state data also reports another 2,019 confirmed infections, increasing Minnesota’s total number of cases to 413,107. The actual number of cases is likely higher due to testing shortages earlier on in the pandemic, state officials say.
Wednesday’s reported positive cases came from a testing volume of just over 25,700 tests. State officials said that Minnesota currently has the ability to test more people, and urged Minnesotans to get tested if they have symptoms or think they may have been exposed to the virus.
Of Wednesday’s reported deaths, 43 were residents of long-term care or assisted living, according to Minnesota Department of Health data updated Wednesday morning.
Of the state’s total deaths since the pandemic began, 3,394 were long-term care of assisted living center residents.
The most recent data shows that 38,284 Minnesotans have been vaccinated for the virus. Currently health care workers and long-term care residents are being prioritized for the vaccine.
HOW ARE PATIENTS DOING?

There were 395,679 patients Wednesday that no longer need to be isolated as they have recovered enough, an increase from 393,506 Tuesday.
As of Wednesday, there were 926 people in the state hospitalized for the virus, including 207 in intensive care units.
In total, 21,748 Minnesotans have been hospitalized for the virus during the pandemic, including 4,597 in intensive care units.
