The department stated, as of Sunday, the state has completed 23,832 tests and private labs have completed 225,687 tests.

According to MDH, 3,047 total cases have required hospitalization. Of that total, 555 remained in the hospital Sunday with 257 in intensive care.

MDH states 18,695 patients no longer need to be isolated. MDH is now reporting that the number of patients no longer needing isolation "does not include those who have died; the cumulative number was adjusted to reflect that change."

According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, the virus has infected about 6.1 million people worldwide and killed about 370.078.

More than 2.5 million people worldwide have recovered as of Sunday.

According to the CDC, patients with confirmed COVID-19 have mild to severe respiratory problems, with symptoms of fever, cough and shortness of breath. Some patients report having muscle aches, headache, sore throat, and/or chills and shaking.

Note: According to MDH - "Because all data are preliminary, the change in number of cumulative positive cases and deaths from one day to the next may not equal the newly reported cases or deaths."
