Indiana reports 16 more coronavirus deaths, total now at 65


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State health officials say 16 more people have died in Indiana from coronavirus-related illnesses, raising the state’s virus death toll to 65 as its confirmed cases surged by more than 400.

The Indiana State Department of Health said Wednesday that Indiana’s number of confirmed cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, grew by 409, to 2,565, following corrections to the previous day’s total.

Indiana's 16 additional deaths reported Wednesday occurred over multiple days.

State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box said Tuesday that the state health department only reports additional deaths once there is a confirmed positive test for COVID-19 in each case.
