(ABC 6 News) - During the Governor's daily news briefing with his top state commissioners, he stared with condolences for the families of the additional two people who have died from COVID-19. Four people have now died from the virus in Minnesota.
Governor Walz today started with the good news, that there is an increased number of ventilators with 1,268 that can be used to treat adults in hospitals throughout the state. The downside he went on to say is that many more are going to be needed.
There is increased testing, and new forms of testing coming out of Mayo Clinic as health officials are working on antibody testing which will be able to find out who's had the virus and who's recovered from it.
