Minnesota COVID-19 hospitalizations have decreased, with 1,394 coronavirus patients as of Thursday. That's down from the high of 1,678 on Dec. 9.

More than 1 million COVID-19 cases have been diagnosed in Minnesota since the pandemic began in the state nearly 22 months ago.

State health officials announced another 4,155 new cases Monday, bringing the total number of infections to 1,000,361.

It has taken just 27 days for the state to add 100,000 new cases. The previous 100,000 took 26 days before that, making this one of the fastest-growing surges since late last year.
