Indianola added one case of COVID-19 in both the city limits and the city's fire district Thursday, but Warren County's case count jumped by six.

The city has a total of 67 positive cases in the city and 14 within the fire district, according to Indianola city manager Ryan Waller. 

According to the Iowa Department of Public Health web site, 103 people in Warren County were tested between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 p.m. Thursday.

There are 190 people in the county who have recovered from the illness, up from 186 on Wednesday. The number of people recovered from the virus is not broken down by zip code.

The number of deaths in the county remained unchanged, at two. According to the Warren County public health department, one of the deaths was an elderly adult and the other was a middle aged adult. No other information was available.

Earlier in the pandemic, officials said that cases are first reported to Warren County Public Health, then later to the first responders in the affected community.

The Indianola Independent Advocate will report the county's case count as of 6 p.m. Sunday-Friday in order to have consistent amounts of time between updates.
