NOTE: Remember that the state does not report numbers on Saturday, meaning that all differences reported here reflect two days of reporting, rather than one. Also, because of the daily removal
of newly identified duplicates and out of state cases, the new case increase may not match the difference between today and Friday’s total case counts.

  • 90% of these newly reported cases are tied to community spread, rather than congregate settings.
  • 91.6% of these newly reported cases date back to the past week in terms of collection date (9/19-9/26).
  • 13% of these newly reported cases are among children (under 18yo). 26% are among 18-29yo.
  • All 9 regions in Louisiana reported new cases.
  • These cases are out of 27,084 tests reported to the state since Friday. Louisiana has conducted 409,136 tests in September.

LDH reports that 149,640 patients are "presumed recovered." (These numbers are normally updated on Mondays; last update 09/21/20).
