**Thursday, MDH stated that the number of newly reported cases includes the remainder of a backlog from recent days. Over the past weekend, the growth of COVID-19 cases has outpaced admission capacity, resulting in a temporary backlog. In addition, MDH stated last week that newly reported cases may include reinfections (a confirmed or probable case of a person who had previously had COVID-19 at least 90 days before).
In addition, MDH said:
- 7.23 million COVID-19 vaccinations have been administered
- 3.30 million people have completed the vaccine series
- 67.4% of those 5 years and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine
