Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — State health officials say a total of 35,712 Hoosiers have now tested positive for COVID-19.
The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) reports 10 more residents have lost their lives to the virus, with the overall death toll at 2,032.
511 new COVID-19 cases were reported Wednesday.
The department says 277,815 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 271,919 on Tuesday.
12.9 percent of those tested were reported as positive cases.
An additional 175 probable deaths were reported on Wednesday. Probable deaths are based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record.
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.
