Indiana Coronavirus cases as of March 28, 2020
Allen County Coronavirus count as of March 28, 2020
But the numbers show confirmed patients between the ages of 30 and 49 aren't far behind, with patients in their 40s at 15.9% and patients in their 30s at 14.7%.
Patients in their 70s are at 12.5%, followed by patients in their 20s at 11.6%.
Patients in their 80s are at 8.2% while those under 20 make up less than 2% of all cases.
Women make up 53% of the confirmed cases, according to the graph.
The confirmed numbers shouldn't be considered a perfect representation of all cases because state officials say they're only testing patients with the most serious symptoms, who tend to be older or have pre-existing medical conditions.
So far, 8,407 Hoosiers have been tested.
All but 15 of Indiana's 92 counties have had at least one confirmed case, including 26 positive cases in Allen County.
