Updated COVID-19 recovery statistics show that lately, Louisiana is going backwards in its pandemic fight. 

But as a whole, there still has been good progress made.

The state issued new COVID-19 recovery data today which shows that 42,225 patients have recovered of coronavirus in Louisiana. That's up from the 39,792 total recoveries the state reported last Monday.

But there is not much other good news in this update.

Every, single other metric measured regressed in the past 7 days and have regressed now for the past several weeks, as the state continues to add more total cases, which is resulting in more active cases and now also, more hospitalizations. 

The state has 57,081 COVID-19 cases and 3,091 reported deaths with the 42,225 recoveries.

Adding deaths to recoveries show that 45,316 of the state's 57,081 cases are CLOSED, representing 79.3 percent.

Subtracting 45,316 closed cases from the state's 57,081 total cases show that there are 11,765 active cases in Louisiana right now. That's more than 4,000 active cases today than last Monday.
