NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - As of Monday, Oct. 19, the Louisiana Department of Health reported the following coronavirus cases for the state:

  • 175,982 total cases - 202 new cases

  • 553 patients in hospitals - increase of 3 patients
  • 64 patients on ventilators - increase of 4 patients

“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’s and yesterday’s total case count,” LDH says.
