As stated on the LDH website, the new case increase may not match the difference between today’s total cases and the previous update because of the daily removal of newly identified duplicates and out-of-state cases.

Hospitalizations increased by 109 and the number of patients on ventilators increased by 8 of Friday; coming to a total of 1,521 hospitalized patients with 68 on ventilators.
