Last week the Hoosier state saw some all-time highs, but heading into this week the blue bars marking the case counts are not as high.

The positivity rate has room for improvement but is still not at it's highest.

After the largest case increase for Monday was reported today, here's a look at the new case trends.

That spike you see from last week was a reporting backlog that was discovered.

Last week was another record-breaking week of high case counts in the Commonwealth.

Since the first case was reported on Friday, March 6th, that is day 1 of Week 1. Weeks run Friday through Thursday.

You'll notice the case increases are a steady stair-step climb week to week.

Deaths data may be skewed because the data is not reported by date of death like Indiana.

We have requested more detailed data that would reflect cases by day of the test and deaths by day of death.

The FOCUS team will keep diving into the data to give you the context to make decisions for you and your family.
