Minnesota COVID-19 deaths top 7,000 as cases, vaccinations rise

Minnesota is reporting 2,429 new coronavirus cases and 10 more deaths linked to COVID-19, the state Department of Health announced Saturday, with the statewide pandemic death toll now exceeding 7,000.

The milestone comes as the rolling seven-day average for deaths declined this week, according to the Star Tribune's coronavirus tracker. The tracker also shows the seven-day average for net new cases declined for a second straight day and now stands at 2,037.

While the infection measure has shown slight signs of improvement over the past week, Minnesota in general continues to see increased case counts since early March with the spread of a more contagious form of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
