INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — The novel coronavirus disease COVID-19 is spreading across the world, including right here in Indiana.

WTHR is committed to presenting facts and not fear in our coverage. We wanted to give some transparency to what was happening in our communities, so we put together a map to track Indiana counties with coronavirus and other demographic information based on data from the Indiana State Department of Health.

We are also tracking the trends of coronavirus cases in Indiana over time to help you stay informed.

We plan on updating these numbers at least once a day during the coronavirus outbreak.

Indiana Coronavirus Cases Reported

As of May 7, Marion County is leading the state with over 30% of all confirmed COVID-19 cases in Indiana. Lake County in northwestern Indiana is second on the list with 10% of the cases followed by Cass County in northern Indiana. Cass County, based on U.S. Census data, has approximately 38,000 residents with over 1,500 confirmed cases which means nearly 4% of the Cass County population has tested positive for COVID-19. Cass County's COVID-19 cases rate per capita is five times the next closest county.

Indiana Coronavirus Deaths Reported

Marion County also leads Indiana in COVID-19 deaths. The ISDH reports over 400 people died from COVID-19 in Marion County. The county with the second most deaths is Lake County followed by Hamilton County and Johnson County. Decatur County southeast of Indianapolis has the highest deaths per capita in Indiana.

Indiana Cases of Coronavirus Disease COVID-19

COVID-19 testing in Indiana has steadily increased, as have the number of confirmed cases in the state. In the last two weeks, Indiana has increased daily testing by around 3% and has confirmed an 4% more COVID-19 cases each day. In the same time frame, deaths have also increased by a similar 4% margin each day.

The White House has recommended a "downward trajectory of documented cases within a 14-day period" as one of the benchmarks before reopening business.
