INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) reported 430 new positive coronavirus cases since Monday at noon, bringing the state’s total to 35,237.

ISDH also announced an additional 46 confirmed deaths from COVID-19, bringing Indiana’s total to 2,022.

The new numbers show 271,919 people have been tested statewide with a rate of 13% positive.

ISDH is now reporting 175 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 44 percent of ICU beds and more than 83 percent of ventilators are available.

The state has yet to provide information on recoveries.
