As of July 17, 2020, LDH will no longer update the COVID-19 data on Saturdays.

Louisiana Statewide Case Numbers

On August 9, Louisiana officials reported 2,653 additional cases of COVID-19 in the state. They also reported an additional 56 deaths.

The active number of cases across the state is approximately 38,171. This number was reached by subtracting the number of deaths statewide and the most recent state-reported number of presumed recoveries from the latest reported total number of cases overall. The state releases the number of presumed recovered weekly, so the number of active cases listed above is an approximation and should not be considered exact.

Overall, Louisiana has reported a cumulative total of 131,399 cases of COVID-19.

State data indicates that COVID-19 led to the deaths of 4,145 people in Louisiana.

The latest number of presumed recovered, released on August 3 is 89,043.

Gov. John Bel Edwards says each case represents one person, no matter how many tests they’ve taken. He says any assertion to the contrary is wrong and calls it irresponsible to spread such misinformation. While duplicates make their way into the count at times, health officials say they work daily to identify and remove these cases from the total.

*Reported COVID-19 patients in hospitals: 1,383 (210 of those on ventilators.) Hospitalizations are down (-23) from the previous report. The number of those on ventilators is up (+3) from the previous report.
