BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Department of Health reported 478 new cases and 8 new deaths on Thursday, May 27, 2021, bringing the total number of cases to 470,331 and the total number of deaths to 10,570.

The number of probable deaths stayed the same for a total of 978 and the total number of confirmed deaths rose by 8 to 9,592. 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.
