5 thoughts on “Indiana COVID-19 cases rise past 600, most in seven weeks”
I keep seeing that 2.87M are fully vaccinated and 2.84M have had their first shot. I think that must be vice-versa?
That’s what the state is reporting: https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/vaccine/2680.htm
I assume fully vaccinated takes into account the single dose J&J shot.
Could you please add back in the “Total cumulative tested individuals” in future posts? (I find that tests per day is not a reliable figure.) Thanks in advance for your consideration of this request,
We added it back in. It was removed by accident. Thanks for pointing it out.
