There are 62 COVID-19 patients in IU Health South Central Region Hospitals as of Monday, according to an IU Health press release. Fifteen have confirmed cases, and 47 patients are waiting for test results. 

According to the release, 572 IU Health South Central Region workers have been tested for the coronavirus, and 60 had tested positive as of Monday. The IU Health Pathology Lab has processed 24,709 COVID-19 tests, and 36,739 virtual tests have been completed on the IU Health app.

According to the release, 26% of ventilators and 61% of ICU beds are in use at all IU Health hospitals. 

IU Health reportedly has “adequate supplies,” but global demand for masks and other personal protective equipment is high. Donations of personal protective equipment, food or other resources are welcome, and those interested should contact the IU Health Foundation.

IU Health will continue releasing COVID-19 data on a weekly basis, marketing consultant Maria Doti said in the release.

“IU Health is committed to being a trusted source of information for the public during the COVID-19 crisis,” Doti said in the release. “As such, we want our communities to know what is happening at IU Health and how COVID-19 is impacting our hospitals and team members.”

This story will be updated every Monday.
