As of Wednesday, September 23, the Louisiana Department of Health reported the following coronavirus cases for the state:

  • 162,645 total cases - 440 new cases
  • 5,225 total deaths - 7 new deaths
  • 592 patients in hospitals - increase of 21 patients
  • 94 patients on ventilators - decrease of 2 patients
  • 149,640 patients recovered - increase of 4,070 patients

The collection dates for most of these cases fall between September 15 and September 22.

  • People aged 29 and under represent 33% of these cases.
  • 25% are individuals between 18-29.

Since Tuesday, Sept. 22, LDH says 12,850 new tests have been reported to the state, bringing the total number of tests to 2,218,785.

“Because of the daily removal of newly identified duplicates and out of state cases, the new case increase may not match the difference between today’s and yesterday’s total case count,” LDH says.

On Friday, Sept. 11 Governor John Bel Edwards announced guidelines for Phase 3.
