pay attention: The Advocate and The Times-Picayune staff calculate an increase in daily case numbers based on the difference between today’s total and yesterday’s confirmed coronovirus cases. The Louisiana Department of Health issues a daily case count on Twitter based on the removal of duplicate cases. This case calculation may differ from the one listed here.
