Allen County Coronavirus count as of April 4, 2020
That number is down from the 14 deaths reported Saturday and the highest one-day total of 24 reported on Friday, but it's important to note that the Health Commissioner says because of delays in testing results, some of those deaths may have occurred in previous weeks and are just being reported now.
Also, some of the most recent deaths may not be included in that number, including a third death reported in Allen County on Saturday.
The Allen County Department of Health announced there are now 67 positive cases and three deaths as of Saturday.
There have been a total of 22,652 people tested in Indiana.
Marion County leads the state with 1,760 confirmed cases.
Officials say testing for COVID-19 is currently unavailable on-demand or by request because of the nationwide shortage.
Patients must currently meet ISDH’s criteria to be tested, and strict protocol must be followed to ensure no one else is exposed while a mucus specimen is collected from the individual.
Anyone with a fever of 100 degrees and a cough should first call their healthcare provider to discuss their symptoms and determine the next course of action.
ISDH says their dashboard has been updated to remove duplicate entries and correct county of residence with data submitted to them.
