Tonight on Newspoint at 11: Fighting a pandemic and epidemic

News

INDIANAPOLIS — In 2019, the CDC reported 1,704 overdoses in Indiana; in 2020, the agency reported 2,268 overdoses, statewide, which the agency says is a 33 percent increase.

The numbers are climbing in 2021, most harshly in Central Indiana.

The shutdown that happened because of Coronavirus restrictions, led to isolation and a lack of recovery tools.

Tonight on FOX59’s Newspoint at 11, Beairshelle Edmé talks about pandemic drug use with a woman who survived an overdose. And, she goes one-on-one with Indiana’s drug czar to find out what officials are doing to save Hoosiers.
