The Indiana State Department of Health on Wednesday morning said the number of presumptive positive cases for COVID-19 in the state has risen to 477 after the emergence of 112 more cases.
The department reported that 3,365 people have been tested so far, up from 2,931 people in the previous day’s report. The ISDH said the test number reflects only those tests reported to the department and the numbers should not be characterized as a comprehensive total.
The death toll in the state has risen to 14, up from 12 the previous day.
Marion County reported 226 cases—up 65 cases from the previous day—with six deaths.
Other area counties with cases are Hamilton (30), Johnson (24), Hendricks (15), Boone (4), Hancock (8), Madison (4), Morgan (5) and Shelby (2).
The health department is providing case updates daily at 10 a.m. based on results received through midnight.
Health officials say Indiana has far more coronavirus cases—possibly thousands more—than those indicated by the number of tests.
Cases have been confirmed in at least 55 Indiana counties so far.
