Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Health officials say five more people in Indiana have been sickened by the coronavirus, including three in the same suburban Indianapolis county, boosting the state’s tally to 11 cases.

The state Department of Health said Wednesday that Johnson County, just south of Indianapolis, has three presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 — the disease caused by the virus — and north-central Indiana’s Howard County has one.

A fifth new case of COVID-19 was announced Wednesday afternoon by health officials in northern Indiana’s St. Joseph County. That case involves an adult male who is now quarantined at his home and was tested by a private outpatient clinic.
