INDIANAPOLIS (WTWO/WAWV) — Just under 400 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to state data released Sunday.

The Indiana State Department of Health said 397 more cases of the coronavirus have been diagnosed, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the state to 34,574.

Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. As of Sunday, nearly 40 percent of ICU beds and nearly 84 percent of ventilators were available.

A total of 1,967 Hoosiers were confirmed to have died from COVID-19, an increase of 9 over the Saturday’s total. Another 167 probable deaths have been reported based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record, following a correction to the previous day’s total, according to ISDH data. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.           

To date, 261,546 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 256,395 on Saturday.   

Hoosiers who have symptoms of COVID-19 and those who have been exposed and need a test to return to work are encouraged to visit a state-sponsored testing site for free testing. Individuals without symptoms who are at high risk because they are over age 65, have diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or another underlying condition, as well as those who are pregnant, live with a high-risk individual or are a member of a minority population that is at greater risk for severe illness, also are encouraged to get tested.
