There were 488 new cases per 100,000 people in Minnesota over the past two weeks, which ranks 15th in the country for new cases per capita, according to Johns Hopkins University researchers. The death count is the 24th highest in the country overall and the 30th highest per capita at about 45 deaths per 100,000 people.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.
