Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — The daily update from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) shows a total of 74,992 Hoosiers have tested positive for COVID-19.
State health officials say 673 new cases were reported on Monday.
An additional three Hoosiers have lost their lives to the virus, with the overall death toll at 2,838.
The new positive cases were reported to ISDH on Aug. 9, while the new deaths occurred between Aug. 7 and Aug. 9.
Any Hoosier who wants to be tested for COVID-19 can get a test at any state-sponsored OptumServe site, regardless of whether they are at high risk or have symptoms.
The department says 852,111 tests for unique individuals have been reported to ISDH, up from 841,125 on Sunday.
8.8 percent of those tested were reported as positive cases.
ISDH says the increase in tests today is a result of a testing facility that has been newly on-boarded into their electronic reporting system. An additional 2,688 individuals tested and 6,263 tests administered from this facility were added to today's test counts.
An estimated total of 54,068 Indiana residents have recovered from the virus, according to data from the Regenstrief Institute.
As of today, nearly 39 percent of ICU beds and nearly 83 percent of ventilators are available across the state.
Another 206 probable deaths have been reported based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.
