The death toll from COVID-19 has reached 301 in Minnesota, where state health authorities on Tuesday reported another 15 fatalities from the infectious disease that is caused by a novel coronavirus.

A single-day record of 365 lab-confirmed cases was reported Tuesday as well in Minnesota, where officials believe a statewide stay-at-home ordered has limited the spread of the virus. The total case count is now 4,181, doubling the amount that had been reported 11 days ago. Some health officials feared a doubling of cases at this exponential stage of the pandemic every couple of days.
