BATON ROUGE, La. — The Louisiana Department of Health reported 203 new cases and 14 new deaths on Friday, March 19, 2021, bringing the total number of cases to 439,737 and the total number of deaths to 9,988.

The number of probable deaths increased by 5 to a total of 789 and the total number of confirmed deaths rose by 9 to 9,199. 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.
