INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Department of Health on Tuesday announced that 430 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the state total to 35,237.

A total of 2,022 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, an increase of 46 over the previous day.

Another 175 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, 271,919 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 265,896 on Monday.   

According to the ISDH, intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. As of Tuesday, nearly 44 percent of ICU beds and more than 83 percent of ventilators are available.

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.
