Numbers Discrepancies Between Feds And IN

Indiana health leaders say they are working to determine why a federal report found about 200 more coronavirus-related deaths among the state’s nursing home residents than state officials had tallied. An apparent slowdown of coronavirus-related deaths is continuing in Indiana as figures released by state health officials show it has been more than a week since more than 20 people died with infections. State officials suspect the difference stems from Indiana nursing homes only being asked once in early April for a total number of previous COVID-19 deaths and infections, while they have since been required to report new cases within 24 hours.
