State sees more COVID-19 deaths in August than JulySeptember 2, 2020

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana health officials on Tuesday added 16 more coronavirus-related deaths as state reports show more deaths of people with COVID-19 infections during August than the month before.
Indiana’s newly recorded deaths raise the state’s pandemic death toll to 3,312, including confirmed and presumed coronavirus cases, since Indiana’s first fatality was reported in mid-March, according to the Indiana State Department of Health. Most of the new deaths occurred between Thursday and Monday.
The state had at least 309 coronavirus deaths during August, up from the 287 such deaths reported during July.
COVID-19 fatalities in Indiana remain far below the level seen earlier in the outbreak, when at least 1,041 people died during April and 917 during May.
But the death rates and COVID-19 hospitalizations have not declined significantly over the past couple months despite the decision of Gov. Eric Holcomb to impose a statewide mask mandate and continue the state’s limits on crowd sizes for restaurants, bars and public events.
