That brings to 12,438 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day’s total. ISDH points out that 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. The additional positive cases not included in today’s report will be captured in the coming days and reflected appropriately.
