BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Department of Health reported 430 new cases and 34 new deaths on Sunday, February 21, 2021, bringing the total number of cases to 424,176 and the total number of deaths to 9,466.

The number of probable deaths rose by 6 to a total of 668 and the total number of confirmed deaths rose by 20 to 8,798. As stated on the LDH website, the new case increase may not match the difference between today’s total cases and the previous update because of the daily removal of newly identified duplicates and out-of-state cases.
