Lynn Eidahl with Hennepin Health administered tests at a free walk-up/drive-through COVID-19 testing event at the Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center in Minneapolis in September.

Minnesota reported single-day records of COVID-19 hospitalizations and newly diagnosed infections on Thursday, marks that aren't likely to stand for long as the pandemic continues to spread, the state's health commissioner predicted.

The addition of 2,872 confirmed and probable infections and 32 deaths brought Minnesota's pandemic totals to 142,311 infections and 2,419 deaths. Daily infection totals have surpassed 2,000 four times in the past two weeks.

"Two thousand and more is becoming our new norm," Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm said, "and I think we need to brace ourselves for days with bigger totals yet to come."
