Thirty new deaths were added to the state's pandemic total in the past week. The total deaths in Minnesota attributed to the coronavirus passed 13,000 a few weeks ago.
Statewide, about 10,000 new cases of COVID-19 were reported to the Minnesota Department of Health last week. The state's death toll from the pandemic surpassed 13,000 in the past week. The number of cases is probably much higher, because cases identified by a positive home test are not reported to the state.
