Indiana Surpasses 700,000 Confirmed COVID-19 Cases, Reports Recent Increase

The Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) reported 970 new COVID-19 cases and 16 confirmed deaths Tuesday, bringing the state totals to 700,775 cases and 12,762 confirmed deaths.

After weeks of declining cases, the state is seeing a slow uptick.

Indiana reported its most recent 100,000 new COVID-19 cases over the course of nearly three months, slowing down its pace of new cases significantly. 

However, there has been an uptick in new cases. The state averaged more than 5,500 cases per day in December, 3,750 cases per day in January, 1,200 in February and 830 in March. So far in April, the state is averaging more than 1,000 per day. 

In fact, the Indiana Department of Health has only reported three days in April with fewer than 900 new cases.

Along with those new cases come an increase in hospitalizations. The seven-day average for COVID-19 hospitalizations has increased over the last 20 days by 42%.

More populous counties accounted for a greater share of new cases over the last three months. Four reported more than 6,000 new cases – Marion, Lake, St. Joseph, and Allen counties. Those four counties made up nearly 32% of the state’s new cases.

The statewide seven-day all-test positivity rate increased to 4.9%, up from 4.8% Monday.

In Monroe County, officials reported 18 new cases and no new deaths. County totals are now 11,302 cases and 166 deaths. The county’s positivity rate is at 1.2%, up from 1.1% Monday. Area hospitalizations are at 32.

Brian Dixon, the director of public health informatics at the Regenstrief Institute, which organizes and releases the state data, said Tuesday that a reported spike in Monroe County hospitalizations was likely an error.

Dixon said hospitalizations have been steadily rising in many Indiana counties but there did not appear to be a sudden rise in Monroe County admissions.

IDOH reports 23,474 more people have become fully vaccinated as of Tuesday. More than 1.4 million Hoosiers are now fully vaccinated.

And in Monroe County, 584 newly-fully vaccinated people are part of the total 29,701 people in the county who have been fully immunized against the virus.
