Nine more Hoosiers have died from COVID-19, and 281 new cases have been diagnosed through testing, the Indiana State Department of Health said today.

A total of 2,386 Indiana residents have died from the novel coronavirus, and 192 probable deaths have been reported based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record, the state health department said in a statement. It said the total number of residents known to have the virus is now 43,140, following corrections to the previous day's total. To date, 431,833 tests have been reported to ISDH, up from 426,376 Tuesday.

As of today, nearly 37% of intensive-care-unit beds and nearly 82% of ventilators are available, the state health department said.

Any Indiana residents who want to be tested can obtain tests through one of the state-sponsored OptumServe sites, regardless of whether they are at high risk or have symptoms, the state said.
