INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Department of Health reported 2,567 people hospitalized with COVID-19 in its latest update, along with 57 additional deaths and 6,615 new positive cases.

The agency’s dashboard puts the state’s 7-day positivity rate at 26.2% with a 41% positive rate for unique individuals.

The omicron variant is dominant in Indiana, according to state data, accounting for 85.5% of samples tested. Delta, which was previously the dominant strain in the state, was found in 7.1% of the samples tested.

Dashboard data represents cases and deaths that occurred over a series of dates but were reported to the state in the past 24 hours, according to the Indiana Department of Health.

The agency said 2,102 additional Hoosiers have now been fully vaccinated. To date, 3,738,352 initial doses of the two-dose vaccine have been administered and 3,650,268 individuals have been fully vaccinated. The state has administered more than 1.6 million booster doses.

For the third week in a row, the County Metric map shows all 92 Indiana counties in red, with zero in the Orange, Yellow or Blue categories.

The map is updated every Wednesday. The weekly score is determined by the weekly cases per 100,000 inhabitants of each province and the 7-day test positivity rate.

Since the start of the pandemic, the state has reported a total of 1,642,625 positive cases and 20,856 confirmed COVID-19 deaths. There are also 810 probable COVID-19 deaths where a doctor listed COVID-19 as a contributing cause of death, but no positive test was documented.
