  • 361,148 total cases - 5,318 new cases - A backlog is included in today’s case and test count resulting from a newly on-boarded lab. This backlog includes 916 cases and 4,963 total tests. The cases date as far back as 11/9/20.

  • 1,975 patients in hospitals - decrease of 54 patients
  • 245 patients on ventilators - increase of 10 patients

“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.
