40 deaths, 2,534 new COVID-19 cases in Minnesota two-day report, continuing downward trend
December 28, 2020
Minnesota is reporting 40 new deaths and 2,534 new coronavirus cases, the state Health Department said Sunday morning.
Because of the Christmas holiday, the state released two days' worth of coronavirus data on Sunday, so figures can appear higher from the two-day count.
But the combined numbers from Dec. 25 and 26 are still lower than a single day of data last Sunday: 70 newly reported deaths and more than 2,700 new cases. That indicates a downward trend is continuing.
