INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State health officials report the number of coronavirus patients in Indiana hospitals grew over the weekend to the highest level in nearly five months.
The 1,238 COVID-19 hospitalizations as of Sunday marked the eighth straight day topping 1,000 after not reaching that high since the end of May.
Hospitalizations have increased nearly 65% since Sept. 19, just before Gov. Eric Holcomb decided to lift nearly all of Indiana’s restrictions on businesses and crowd sizes.
Six additional deaths were added Monday to the state’s toll, raising it to 3,795, including confirmed and presumed coronavirus cases.
That's more 114 deaths in the past week.
