The Indiana State Dept. of Health today announced 676 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19. That brings to 19,295 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the new coronavirus following corrections to yesterday’s total.
While the number of cases of COVID-19 continues to increase, hospitals are reporting that intensive care beds and ventilator capacity remain steady. Today, 42.4 percent of ICU beds statewide are available, and 80.5 percent of ventilators are available.
A total of 1,115 Hoosiers have been confirmed to have died of COVID-19, an increase of 53 over those reported yesterday. Another 114 probable deaths have been reported. Probable deaths are those for which a physician listed COVID-19 as a contributing cause based on X-rays, scans and other clinical symptoms but for which no positive test is on record. Deaths are reported based on when data is received by the ISDH and occurred over multiple days.
To date, 104,141 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 99,639 on Friday.
