Forbes Says Don't go to Indiana Due to High Number of COVID-19 Cases


STATEWIDE -- Indiana has landed in the top 5 of a list it probably doesn't want to be on.

Indiana has been ranked the 4th most-risky state to visit, according to Forbes. That's due to the state's continuous rise in coronavirus cases, averaging around 90 new cases a day per 100,000 people. 

Indiana recently crossed a record 7,000 deaths due to the virus. 

Governor Eric Holcomb said the state is "on fire" with coronavirus.

Risk factors: Statewide mask mandate - 90.2 new daily cases per 100,000 people - 12.4% of Covid tests are positive

Last week, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb said his state was “on fire” with coronavirus as the number of high-risk counties more than doubled since the previous week. Holcomb recently extended a statewide mask mandate and toughened restrictions on crowd sizes.

Indiana is currently recording an average of 90.2 new daily Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people, which is 261% above the “tipping point” threshold.

Indiana’s percent positive rate is currently at 12.4%, more than double the target. Positivity has been rising for the past two consecutive weeks.
