State officials have theories but don’t know for certain why Minnesota logged its highest daily jump in COVID-19 hospitalizations Tuesday, up 57 to a total of 545. State Health Department’s Kris Ehresmann says they’ve seen some cases where people initially have milder symptoms that become more severe later on. “We had some higher numbers of cases reported last week, so days with much higher numbers of cases, it could just be function of that. But I can’t say for certain — but that is certainly something to consider.”
New numbers come out later this morning (11am).
