INDIANAPOLIS — A new COVID-19 death was reported in Greene County, according to the Indiana State Department of Health. To date, 24 Greene County residents have died as a result of the virus.

The ISDH on Tuesday announced that 373 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing the state total to 32,078.

A total of 1,850 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, an increase of 18 over the previous day.

Another 154 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. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.

Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remains steady. As of today, nearly 41 percent of ICU beds and more than 82 percent of ventilators are available.

To date, 230,749 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 226,251 on Monday.

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.
