Wabash Valley COVID-19 updates

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s hospitals had more COVID-19 patients than ever before over the Thanksgiving weekend and the number under intensive care unit treatment also continued its recent steep increase.

The Indiana State Department of Health’s daily update on Monday also reported 38 more coronavirus deaths occurring over the past several days.

November has been Indiana’s deadliest COVID-19 month and health officials have raised concerns about Thanksgiving gatherings leading to another surge in cases.

Indiana hospitals were treating 3,401 COVID-19 patients as of Sunday–about a 350% increase since late September.
