ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota health officials have confirmed the state’s third coronavirus (COVID-19) case and say the patient is in critical condition.
The Minnesota Department of Health says the patient is an Anoka County resident in their 30s who was likely exposed through contact with international travelers.
The department reported the case Tuesday, shortly after Gov. Tim Walz signed a $21 million bill to bolster the state’s ability to manage the outbreak.
The money, which the House and Senate unanimously approved Monday, raises Minnesota’s available total to about $25 million.
About $10 million is also on its way from a federal grant fund.
