INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) reported 521 new positive coronavirus cases since Thursday at noon, bringing the state’s total to 33,558.

ISDH also announced an additional 40 confirmed deaths from COVID-19, bringing Indiana’s total to 1,946.

Marion County reported their totals as 9,616 cases and 571 deaths – the most in the state.

The new numbers show 248,713 people have been tested statewide with a rate of 13.5% positive.

ISDH is now reporting 164 total probable deaths. The agency said probable deaths are those for which a physician listed COVID-19 as a contributing cause based on X-rays, scans and other clinical symptoms but for which no positive test is on record.

The health department said deaths are reported based on when data is received, and could reflect a period of multiple days.

Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. As of today, nearly 38 percent of ICU beds and nearly 83 percent of ventilators are available.

The state has yet to provide information on recoveries.
