MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota has reported 35 new COVID-19 deaths, equaling the state’s single-day high set May 28.
It’s possible that some of the 35 deaths reported Wednesday did not happen during the previous 24 hours because it can take several days for deaths to be reported to the Minnesota Department of Health.
The seven-day rolling average of daily deaths in Minnesota had risen over the past two weeks from 9.71 to 11 as of Tuesday.
The latest deaths raised the state’s cumulative toll to 2,281. About 70% of the deaths have occurred among residents of long-term care facilities.
