Coronavirus Markets Vs Science

Three more Indiana deaths along with 362 additional confirmed cases of coronavirus were reported Sunday by the Indiana State Department of Health.

The new reported cases bring to about 44,930 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Indiana and nearly 2,430 deaths. The Department of Health reports more than 470,500 Hoosiers have been tested for the virus, and 9.5% have tested positive.

Locally, the only deaths reported were two in St. Joseph County, and Elkhart County reported the most new positive cases with 48.

Elkhart County reported one new COVID-19-related death Saturday while St. Joseph County reported an additional two deaths in Saturday’s update from the ISDH.

According to the department, the three deaths were included in a total of 21 new deaths reported throughout the state on Saturday.

Officials said intensive care unit and ventilator capacity remain steady. More than 39% of ICU beds and nearly 84% of ventilators are available in the state.

For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. Older adults and people with existing health problems are among those particularly susceptible to more severe illness, including pneumonia.

ISDH will be hosting free drive-through clinics in Goshen and Elkhart this week. Clinics will be held from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday at Team Rehab, 223 Chicago Ave., Goshen, and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday in the North Side Gymnasium, 300 Lawrence St., Elkhart.
