The Minnesota Department of Health reported Wednesday that 800 Minnesotans are hospitalized for COVID-19.

COVID-19 hospitalizations in Minnesota reached a 2021 high of 800 on Tuesday as a fourth pandemic wave continued to put pressure on the state's health care systems.

The Minnesota Department of Health on Wednesday also reported 31 COVID-19 deaths and 2,077 newly diagnosed coronavirus infections, raising the state totals in the pandemic to 8,140 COVID-19 deaths and 708,220 infections.

The state has reported 228 COVID-19 deaths so far in September, compared with 154 in August and 54 in July. While seniors make up 87% of Minnesota's COVID-19 deaths - and 28 of the deaths reported Wednesday - the latest update included a Hennepin County resident in the 35-to-39 age range. Eighty people younger than 40 have died of COVID-19 in Minnesota since the start of the pandemic 19 months ago.
