The Indiana State Department of Health said Wednesday that 3,756 new positive COVID-19 cases had been identified throughout the Hoosier State, the state's highest one-day increase of new positive cases so far.

Additionally, the state health department said Wednesday that 25 more Hoosiers had died from the virus statewide.

Counties located in southwest Indiana's Tri-State region contributed considerably to the state's overall increases on Wednesday.

  • Daviess: 12 new positive cases
  • Knox: 9 new positive cases
  • Pike: 5 new positive cases

Alongside Dubois County's Wednesday report of 49 new positive cases, came the county's entry into the state's COVID-19 Red Zone, indicating a high positivity rate and community spread within the county.

After ISDH's Wednesday report of 3,756 new positive cases and 25 new COVID-19 deaths throughout the state, 191,764 Hoosiers are now confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19 so far, with 4,224 total Hoosiers now confirmed to have died from the virus.

With 30.1% of ICU beds and 77.1% of ventilators now available statewide in Indiana's hospitals, a decrease from Tuesday's available resources, statewide COVID-19 hospitalizations also increased, from 1,867 as of Monday to 1,897 as of Tuesday.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
