In Allen County, 36 more residents have tested positive for COVID-19, but 33 cases were also removed from the county's count, bringing the total to 2,866 cases and 132 deaths, the county health department said Thursday. The 33 cases removed were the result of ongoing data reconciling by the county department with information in the Indiana State Department of Health's database. Cases removed from the total count were either duplicate entries or residents of other counties, the county health department said.
