Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. More than 40 percent of ICU beds and 81 percent of ventilators were available as of Saturday. 

A total of 1,362 Hoosiers have been confirmed to have died of COVID-19, an increase of 34 over the previous day. Another 128 probable deaths have been reported based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.
