Health officials say the number of confirmed novel coronavirus cases in Minnesota has now risen to 60.
This new data was released Tuesday by the Minnesota Department of Health. Officials say that number is up six from the 54 confirmed cases reported Monday, and is the smallest daily increase in a few days.
Officials say they suspect there are likely "many more" cases of the coronavirus in Minnesota because there are examples of community transmission, combined with a shortage of testing kits.
Counties across Minnesota with confirmed cases include: Anoka, Benton, Blue Earth, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Olmsted, Ramsey, Renville, Stearns, Wright, Waseca and Washington.
Of the six new cases, officials say all had a history of travel to other states, rather than being the result of community transmission.
