The highest number of new cases was reported in Marion County, which had 119. After that it was Lake County with 17 and Johnson County with 15.
Dr. Kristina Box, state health commissioner, said the peak of coronavirus illnesses is expected in mid- to late-April.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, or death.
