INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Almost one in six of Indiana’s COVID-19 infections during the pandemic have been confirmed in the past week as the state’s daily average of coronavirus deaths has reached its highest level following a steep increase since September.

The Indiana Department of Health’s daily update on Thursday reported 59 more coronavirus deaths occurring over the past several days.

Those raised the state’s seven-day rolling average of COVID-19 deaths to 43 per day, passing the previous peak in late April.

The nearly 7,500 new infections reported Thursday give the state almost 45,000 confirmed cases in one week’s time, or about 16% of all such infections since early March.
