Thursday, May 14 COVID-19 Update | Around The Town

Coronav Update
As of noon Thursday, May 14, , there are 33,489 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the state, which is 827 more cases than yesterday. Of those new cases, said state health officials with the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), 609 came from labs that are new to reporting. These labs previously have not reported and are now reporting all their historic lab results electronically.
This means 218 of the 827 new cases came from the rest of the regular reporting across the state. Additional labs across the state are expected to be onboarding in a similar fashion as testing across the state continues to ramp up, noted LDH officials.
Of the total positive cases, 22,608 are presumed recovered. Furthermore, 247,589 Louisianans have been tested for the virus, which means 214,100 that were tested for the virus tested negative.
Additionally, statewide 1,193 are being treated in a hospital with 140 of those on ventilators. Reported deaths total 2,351 and unconfirmed deaths are 66. The population of Louisiana is 4.6 million which means .72 — less than one percent –of the population have tested positive for COVID-19.
