According to the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, the virus has infected more than 32.2 million people worldwide and killed about 983,952 people.

About 22 million people worldwide have recovered as of Friday.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 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."

Additionally, MDH issued the following note about its hospitalization data:

As of 9/24, changes to hospitalization data more clearly show how many people in Minnesota required admission to a hospital and ICU.

  • “Total hospitalizations” and “Cases admitted to a hospital” include both ICU and non-ICU admissions.
  • Admission dates are when the case was first admitted to the hospital. In most cases, the original admission was for COVID.
  • Cases hospitalized before they were diagnosed with COVID also use original admission dates. This is the reason for admission dates before the first case was identified in Minnesota.
