The Indiana State Department of Health on Tuesday reported an additional 809 cases and 16 deaths from the novel coronavirus. That brings the state’s totals to 63,678 cases and 2,725 deaths.
More than 716,800 Hoosiers have been tested for the virus, and 8.9% have tested positive.
An additional 199 probable deaths from COVID-19 have been reported. Probable deaths are based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test was recorded.
Marion County continues to lead the state in total cases and deaths, with 13,954 and 713, respectively.
Its surrounding counties have some of the state’s highest totals as well, including 2,288 cases and 103 deaths in Hamilton County, 1,666 cases and 105 deaths in Hendricks County, and 1,574 cases and 118 deaths in Johnson County.
Outside of Central Indiana, Lake County remains the state’s second-hardest-hit county, with 6,791 cases and 266 deaths.
Warren County is the only county in the state with fewer than 20 cases.
Last week, Indiana recorded a record high number of new cases, with over 1,000 in a single day.
The week also saw both Gov. Eric Holcomb and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett take steps to address the climb in cases. Holcomb instituted a statewide mask order that went into effect Monday, and Hogsett shut down bars until at least mid-August, among other restrictions.
