    1. The state doesn’t report so-called new cases by county. It updates the cumulative total. As noted, the total in Marion County decreased by 10 from yesterday.

    1. That was previously determined by using the increase in cases from the previous day. We need to rename that category.

    1. Nancy, it means that the health department found 159 duplicate or incorrectly reported cases yesterday and eliminated them from the cumulative total. That is a lot more than usual.

  1. The way it’s phrased makes it sounds like yesterday’s number was erroneously reported, not like the cumulative total of current cases decreased by 10. How will that category be renamed going forward so I know what to look for?

    1. Kenny, to keep it simple, I think we’ll just do it like today and note how much the cumulative total has increased or decreased in parenthesis.
