The Indiana Department of Health said today that 1,920 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through testing, bringing to 934,586 the number of Indiana residents now known to have had the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day's dashboard.

To date, 14,684 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, which includes three newly reported deaths that occurred between Sept. 8 and 16, the state health department said in a statement. It said another 473 probable deaths have been reported to date based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record.

A total of 4,116,117 unique individuals have been tested in Indiana, up from 4,093,023 Friday, the statement said. It said 13,172,883 tests, including repeat tests for unique individuals, have been reported to the state since Feb. 26, 2020.
