Indiana reports more than 2,000 new COVID-19 cases

The Indiana State Department of Health on Friday reported another all-time daily high of 2,328 new COVID-19 cases, topping the previous high of 1,962 set Thursday. Friday’s number, however, contained “approximately 300 cases whose reporting was delayed due to a technical issue over the past few days,” the department said.

Even without the additional 300 cases, the number would still mark the first time the department has reported more than 2,000 new cases in a single day. The seven-day moving average for cases rose to 1,720.

The state also reported 22 additional deaths from COVID-19, the ninth time in the past 11 days in which deaths have been in double digits.

The department reported the testing of 12,057 more unique individuals, the highest testing number since Oct. 9.

Following are the latest COVID-19 numbers from the Indiana State Department of Health. The department updates its data daily based on information received through 11:59 p.m. the previous day.
