Testing for COVID-19 is increasing around Indiana. During a Wednesday afternoon media conference, Dr. Kristina Box, a Commissioner with the Indiana Department of Health, says the most asked question she receives is will there be more testing for coronavirus? She says the answer is yes.
Box says testing is sup, thanks to partnerships with Eli Lilly and other
private labs around Indiana. She says Lilly had the highest day of testing to date with 458 tests done around the state.
Box says Lilly was also able to do 436 tests in their drive through line. This is for health care providers and those who are in the high risk population. Because supplies are currently limited, Box says they will continue to promote targeted testing. Because supplies are currently limited, Box says they will continue to promote targeted testing. This will allow hospitals to continue testing the most acutely ill and have a rapid turnaround time for the results.
New testing guidelines were announced on Wednesday in Indiana, that will
include people who may be symptomatic and at risk, but may not have to be
hospitalized. This includes diabetics, people with high blood pressure and pregnant women.
