Minnesota health officials report the number of newly confirmed coronavirus cases jumped by 737 on Sunday.
An increase in the number of completed tests accounts for some of the increase, but not all, Minnesota Public Radio News reported.
The number of newly confirmed cases compares with 464 reported Saturday. It’s the second-largest single-day increase in July so far and brings the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Minnesota to 46,204 since the pandemic began.
The Minnesota Department of Health also reports three new deaths from COVID-19, raising the state’s death toll to 1,541. All three of the deaths were in the Twin Cities metro area. Two were people who lived in private homes and one was a resident of a long-term care facility.
Iowa health officials said Sunday that a “significant number” of coronavirus tests were not reported over the weekend due to a backlog in the department’s electronic reporting system.
The Iowa Department of Public Health said its COVID-19 website will continue to update, and noted in a news release that reported daily case counts from last week will be adjusted as it processes the backlog.
Sunday, the Iowa website had confirmed 661 additional COVID-19 cases, bringing to 38,564 the number of positive cases since the outbreak began. Seven additional COVID-19 deaths brought the state’s death toll to 792. The department noted 552 of the state’s deaths involved Iowans with preexisting medical conditions.
COVID-19 outbreaks at long-term care facilities account for 419 of the state’s total deaths.
The department reports 214 hospitalizations, including 75 patients are in intensive care. Hospitals in the state admitted 20 new COVID-19 patients in the past 24 hours compared to 26 on Saturday.
