INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — State officials are reporting 76 new cases of the coronavirus with statewide total climbing to 201.

The Indiana State Department of Public Health says four people in Indiana have died after testing positive for COVID-19. The latest cases announced Sunday have been reported in 22 counties.

The highest number was in Marion County, which is reporting 35 new cases.

After that there were eight new cases in Hamilton County.

Gov. Eric Holcomb has delayed Indiana’s May 5 primary election until June 2. But he's holding off on ordering residents to stay home as governors elsewhere, including Illinois, have done.
