The Indiana State Department of Health on Tuesday reported 10,164 new COVID-19 cases and 134 additional deaths because of the virus.

Statewide hospitalizations due to COVID-19, which had fallen for four days in a row, rose to 3,204 on Monday, up from 3,137 the previous day. The pandemic high was 3,519 on Jan. 13.

Every county in Indiana was colored red on the state’s advisory-level map Tuesday for the fifth report in a row. Red is the highest level on the four-color map, which means every county is seeing at least 200 new cases week per 100,000 residents and seven-day positivity rate for all tests of 15% or more.

The state said 74.3% of COVID test samples checked for their variant strain in January have been the Omicron variant while 25.3% were the Delta variant.
