The death toll in Minnesota from COVID-19 is up to 1,606, with six additional deaths reported Saturday, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

The health department reported another 731 confirmed coronavirus infections, taking Minnesota’s total cases to 55,188. The actual number of infections likely is much higher as the data only represent those who have been tested for the virus, state officials say.

Saturday’s reported deaths included an individual in their 40s, an individual in their 50s and an individual in their 60s, two individuals in their 70s and an individual in their 90s. The deaths were in Clay, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Sherburne counties. Three of the six were from a long-term care or assisted-living facility.

Of the state’s total deaths, 1,226 were long-term care or assisted living center residents.

HOW ARE PATIENTS DOING?

There were 48,119 patients as of Sunday who have recovered to the point where they no longer need to be isolated.

A total of 5,208 patients with COVID-19 have been hospitalized in Minnesota, with 317 hospitalized as of Sunday. Of those patients, 149 are in intensive care.

    Over 70 people test positive for COVID-19 after attending Ohio winery event

    More than 70 people were infected by the coronavirus after attending a socially distant event at an Ohio winery — raising alarms about outbreaks in rural areas, according to a report.

    Kati Finn and six of her friends were among those who tested positive for COVID-19 after visiting the Leisure Time Winery in Napoleon, where she and about 90 other guests played a game of “Name that tune” last month, according to the Wall Street Journal.

    “It’s insane to me that we all got COVID-19 and yet everything seemed so safe there,” Finn, a middle-school secretary from Defiance, Ohio, told the paper. She said guests stayed six feet apart, and that servers all wore masks and gloves.

    The vineyard outbreak is one reason rural Henry County has the state’s highest number of coronavirus infections, which tripled to 122 last month, according to the paper.

    It’s part of a larger trend in which the virus has recently spread more rapidly in the rural Midwest, experts said. In Ohio, Missouri, Wisconsin and Illinois, for example, infections are spiking in counties with no major cities.

    At the Ohio winery, it wasn’t clear whether participants played the game inside or outside, where experts say the virus is less likely to spread.

    Finn, who suffered severe symptoms after the event, said she has since recovered.
