Coronavirus Tuesday update: 14 more Minnesota deaths and 519 new infections

18May 2021

Minnesota recorded 14 new COVID-19 deaths Tuesday, a day after reporting zero daily fatalities for the fourth time this year.

COVID-19 deaths are not reported uniformly so a drop or spike in daily deaths does not make a trend. The seven-day rolling average for COVID-19 deaths is roughly 10 fatalities per day and has remained at that level through most of May.

New cases and hospitalization have continued to trend downward. The seven-day rolling average for test-positivity remains below the 5 percent caution threshold.

There are 440 patients hospitalized with 112 in critical condition. That’s up slightly from the day before, but down roughly 37 percent from the last peak.

Minnesota has now diagnosed 595,532 infections and 7,310 have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic began in March 2020.

There are more than 2.7 million residents who’ve gotten at least one dose of vaccine and 2.3 million with a completed vaccine series. More than 4.8 million doses have been administered.
