The coronavirus.

More than 11,700 Minnesotans have tested positive for COVID-19 and 591 have died, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

That includes 528 new cases — the lowest daily total in the past week — and 13 deaths.

The state reported 4,693 completed tests between Saturday and Sunday, bringing the total number of people tested to 115,781. Minnesota’s daily testing totals have increased under a joint effort between the state, Mayo Clinic and University of Minnesota but still remain far below the maximum capacity of about 10,000 tests per day.

Of the 11,799 people who have tested positive for COVID-19, 7,536 have recovered and no longer need to be isolated.
