Each bar shows weekly case growth since March. Moving from left to right, you can see the steady increase.

You'll notice, since October weekly growth has really ramped up.

The case counts after holidays are marked with different colors. This week, the week after Halloween, the number of Hoosiers infected significantly jumped.
