INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An additional 152 Hoosiers are confirmed or presumed to have died from the coronavirus, pushing Indiana’s death toll from COVID-19 to 1,566, state health officials announced Friday.
A total of 1,328 Hoosiers have been confirmed to have died from COVID-19, 33 more than on Thursday, the Indiana State Department of Health said. Another 119 probable deaths also have been reported. Those are deaths that state officials said doctors blame on coronavirus infections without confirmation of the illness from test results.
Testing shows 675 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19, bringing to 23,146 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the disease, the department said.
Intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remained steady. Nearly 40 percent of ICU beds and more than 81 percent of ventilators were available as of Friday, the department said.
