Indiana COVID-19 hospitalizations increasing in new year

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana health officials report 3,477 new coronavirus infections and 142 additional COVID-19 deaths as the state begins to see a slow increase of coronavirus-related hospitalizations following a previous series of spikes in December.

The Indiana State Department of Health reported Tuesday that 2,907 Hoosiers were hospitalized with COVID-19 on Monday at Indiana’s hospitals.

That’s 71 more patients than on Sunday and the most since Dec. 29.

The COVID-19 hospitalizations have declined about 16% since peaking Nov. 30 but remain more than three times higher than in September.

The number of Indiana residents known to have had the coronavirus is now more than 533,000.
