Just over half the Minnesotans who tested positive for COVID-19 have recovered — a total of 1,020 residents, according to the Minnesota Department of Health.

As of April 15, Minnesota had 1,912 confirmed cases of COVID-19, and more than 41,000 people had been tested. Because of limited testing, more people have had COVID-19 than are counted in state tallies.

About half the 213 Minnesotans hospitalized with COVID-19 on April 15 were in intensive care units, according to the Department of Health. Ninety-four people have died.
