Indiana reports 784 new COVID-19 cases, four more deaths

The Indiana State Department of Health on Sunday reported 784 new COVID-19 cases, the 19th time in the last 20 days that new daily cases have exceeded 600.

The department on Sunday also reported the testing of 12,263 more individuals, but the cumulative total rose by only 10,437, which means 1,826 previous tests were eliminated from the total. Some tests and cases are eliminated from the total after they are initially reported because they turn out to be duplicates.

The state on Sunday said Marion County saw an increase of 132 cases, the 17th straight day that cases in the county have risen by more than 100.

    1. Your right! What should be published: the number, amount, and especially age and percentage.

  1. Population of Indiana 6.7 million and Indiana Covid deaths 2775 = .004 of Hoosiers have died from this “pandemic”. Half of those are nursing home related. Why are healthy people wearing masks and scared? You’re more likely to get crushed by a flying shark. Better helmet up Karen.

    1. Yeah, healthy people like Eduardo Rodriguez – the baseball player who is now out for the season due to heart damage from COVID-19. Professional athletes can’t escape long-term damage from COVID … what makes you think everyone else will?

    2. Joe B., I’m confused, do we “trust the science” when it confirms our views but trust the outliers/anecdotes when it does as well?

    3. Joe B.

      Because I know of a least a 1/2 a dozen who are just fine. 2 of them didn’t even know they had it, but had procedures done requiring them to test. Motorcyclist in Florida died of head trauma was listed as a C-19 death, because he was positive. I think they may of rectified that but none the less it was listed at one time.

    4. May 12th: “Hong Kong’s hospital authority has been monitoring a group of Covid-19 patients for up to two months since they were released. They found about half of the 20 survivors had lung function below the normal range, said Owen Tsang, the medical director of the infectious disease center at Princess Margaret Hospital.

      The diffusing capacity of their lungs — how well oxygen and carbon dioxide transfers between the lungs and blood — remained below healthy levels, Tsang observed.

      A study of blood samples from 25 recovered patients in Wuhan, the city where the virus first emerged, found that they had not fully recovered normal functioning regardless of the severity of their coronavirus symptoms, according to a paper published April 7.

      In another study, CT scans taken over a month of 90 Wuhan coronavirus patients found that of the 70 discharged from the hospital, 66 had mild to substantial residual lung abnormalities on their last CT scans, which showed ground-glass opacity, said a March paper published online in Radiology.”

      July 30th: “New evidence suggests the coronavirus has lasting impacts on the heart, raising alarm for cardiologists who have been concerned about potential long-term heart injury from COVID-19.

      Two German studies, published Tuesday in the peer-reviewed journal JAMA Cardiology, found heart abnormalities in COVID-19 patients months after they had already recovered from the disease caused by SARS-CoV-2.

      The first study included 100 patients from the University of Hospital Frankfurt COVID-19 Registry who were relatively healthy adults in their 40s and 50s. About one-third of the patients required hospitalization, while the rest recovered from home.

      Researchers looked at cardiac magnetic resonance imaging taken nearly two and a half months after they were diagnosed and compared them with images from people who never had COVID-19. The study found heart abnormalities in 78 patients, with 60 of those patients showing signs of inflammation in the heart muscle from the virus.”

  2. I have now heard of 7 positives and they didn’t even take the test. One was a woman who thought she may have been exposed because she worked in a dentist office. She filled out the paper work but had no symptoms and they would not test her, 3 days later she received a letter stating she was positive. The other were similar but found waiting in the line to cumbersome and left yet also received positive letters. It is rumored that when testing positive you need to be tested every 3 days and each new test is a new confirmed positive. I would like someone at the State of Indiana Department of Health to comment on this subject. Those (2) issue alone could skew the numbers.

    I would love to trust the numbers but local, state and federal government agencies have proven they are less than transparent.

    1. Ah yes, tests. We need more tests. It’s embarrassing we don’t have more tests. We should all be able to get tested twice a week by this point if we feel like being tested that often. We shouldn’t be reopening without more testing capability.

      Maybe we should ask … why don’t we have more tests at this point? (We all know why.)
