The Indiana State Dept. of Health today announced 394 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease stemming from the new coronavirus, bringing to 12,438 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the virus following corrections to yesterday’s total.
The new cases and new tests reported today are lower than expected due to a technology issue and should not be interpreted as a decline in new infections, according to the ISDH. The ISDH assured additional positive cases not included in today’s report will be captured in coming days and reflected appropriately.
A total of 661 Hoosiers have died to date. Deaths are reported based on when data is received by the ISDH and occurred over multiple days.
To date, 69,470 tests have been reported to the ISDH, up from 67,264 on Tuesday.
