Indiana numbers

The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) today announced that 566 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through testing at ISDH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and private laboratories. That brings to 25,127 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day’s total.

Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remains steady. Nearly 45 percent of ICU beds and more than 81 percent of ventilators were available as of Tuesday.

A total of 1,444 Hoosiers have been confirmed to have died of COVID-19, an increase of 33 over the previous day. Another 134 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.

To date, 150,510 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 146,688 on Monday.


All data are provisional and will change. In order to rapidly report COVID-19 information to the public, data are being reported in real-time. Information is constantly being entered into an electronic system and the number of cases and deaths can change as additional information is gathered. Information for a death previously reported has changed, therefore, today’s numbers have been adjusted.
