Dave’s weekly update, you can see testing and cases are at highs, hosps and deaths are not. So much immunity in the population and maybe a little of Omicron being milder. Note that the usual 7 day delay on what is included probably isn’t long enough given the current DOH processing issues. Dave’s notes:
1. For all charts the last 7 days of data is excluded to avoid charting incomplete data. Deaths reporting however is likely to be incomplete.
2. All data is taken from the Minnesota Department of Health Situation Update for OCVID-19 web page https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/situation.html and from the Response and Preparation web page https://mn.gov/covid19/data/response-prep/response-capacity.jsp.
