COVID 19 in MN: Hospitalizations boost - MPR news

Two days in the past on MPR news we characterized the state's COVID-19 circumstance as drizzling; neither "sunny" as it became with the very low case costs in mid-March, nor "stormy" as it turned into throughout the throes of the first omicron surge in mid-January.

New statistics has come out for the reason that.

  • The CDC now classifies two MN counties as excessive chance, and eight as medium.

  • Wastewater records suggests COVID is still expanding, but *might* be slowing.

  • instances & hospitalizations proceed to raise

  • Minnesota is beating Memphis (neatly, Tennessee—as a minimum in vaccination prices).

  • last week we reviewed some of the CDC's chance ratings and confirmed that lots of the state was regarded low possibility. The exceptions at that time had been Mahnomen and Olmsted counties, which were rated medium. yesterday, the CDC upped the risk tiers. Olmsted and Wabasha now have high chance rankings, with eight other counties now rated medium.

    The CDC suggests that everyone stay up so far with their COVID-19 vaccinations and get demonstrated when you are uncovered to COVID-19 or have indicators. furthermore, it says that:

  • those in medium possibility areas should still discuss with their health care providers about wearing masks and taking different precautions.

  • those in excessive risk areas should still wear a mask indoors and further precautions could be vital for those who are at risk.

  • Statewide the COVID-19 case rate is now 18 per a hundred,000, which exceeds the Minnesota branch of fitness's "high possibility" threshold. moreover, as of the previous day, the COVID-19 hospitalization fee inched up into MDH's "caution" zone (just over four per a hundred,000).

    in spite of the fact that lots of people are doing at-domestic tests and some are attempting to self-manage knowledge COVID sickness nowadays, the variety of cases proven and tracked with the aid of the branch of health continues to climb. That remains true for every region and, as proven under, for every most important racial and ethnic neighborhood within the state.
