Coronavirus Tuesday update: MN reports 22 coronavirus deaths, 3,570 new cases

The Thanksgiving holiday weekend appears to have had an impact on the number of people who got tested for the coronavirus.
The state Department of Health reported the results of 22,017 tests Tuesday, about two-thirds fewer tests than a week ago. Those tests diagnosed 3,570 new coronavirus cases, the fewest in one day since Nov. 2.
However, Minnesota continues to have one of the highest rates of new infections in the nation. In the last week, Minnesota has diagnosed more than 100 new cases per 100,000 residents.
That rate is 10 times higher than health officials would like to see.
Another point of concern is hospital capacity. There are 1,840 patients hospitalized with 394 in critical condition — the most of anytime in the pandemic.
There are about 100 intensive care beds and 659 regular hospital beds currently available state wide. Central Minnesota has already had to dip into its surge capacity for critically ill patients.
The state has nearly 1,000 surge capacity hospital beds and currently 30 are in use.
Hospital capacity is not just a function of space. There also need to be enough doctors and nurses available to care or those who are hospitalized.
Minnesota has now diagnosed 332,312 coronavirus infections since March. There have been 3,615 COVID-19 fatalities including the 22 deaths reported Tuesday.
The most recent fatalities ranged in age from their 50s to more than 100 years old. Seventeen lived in long-term care and five in private homes.
Residents of long-term care have accounted for 2,430 COVID-19 deaths, about 67 percent of all Minnesota coronavirus fatalities. There are nearly 700 long-term care facilities currently with outbreaks.
