The Indiana State Department of Health announced on Monday, April 27, that 963 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through testing at ISDH, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and private laboratories. That brings to 15,961 the total number of Indiana residents known to have the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day’s total.
A total of 844 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died of COVID-19. Another 88 probable deaths have been reported. Probable deaths are those for which a physician listed COVID-19 as a contributing cause based on X-rays, scans and other clinical symptoms but for which no positive test is on record. Deaths are reported based on when data are received by ISDH and occurred over multiple days.
To date, 84,476 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 81,708 on Sunday.
St. Joseph County reported 592 cases with 19 deaths. Elkhart County reported 247 cases with 5 deaths.
