Minnesota hospitals are caring for nearly twice as many COVID-19 patients as they did at the end of February following an increase in new coronavirus infections.

As of Sunday, 448 people were in Minnesota's hospitals with COVID-19 complications, compared with 232 on Feb. 28, according to data released by state health officials.

While still below the crisis levels of last fall, hospitals this time around are mostly treating COVID-19 patients who are younger than 65 now that 82.5% of the state's elderly have been vaccinated.
