INDIANA (FOX19) - Nine new positive coronavirus cases have been confirmed by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH).

The nine new cases involve residents from eight different counties:

  • Clark (1)
  • Fayette (1)
  • Hamilton (1)
  • Hendricks (1)
  • Jennings (1)
  • Lake (1)
  • Madison (1)

With these new cases, there are now 39 total positive cases of COVID-19 across the Hoosier state.

An Indiana resident tested positive for the coronavirus last week at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford, said TriHealth spokesman Rob Whitehouse in an email to FOX19 NOW.

“Regarding your question about the person who tested positive at McCullough-Hyde in Oxford. The person was tested last week and returned home to Indiana to self-quarantine after the test,” wrote Whitehouse.

It was not immediately clear if this case is a new one for Butler County, Ohio or one of the existing six in the county out of a total of 67 confirmed cases in the state.

Two Indiana residents have died from COVID-19 so far, according to the ISDH.
