From the Document: "The Louisiana Department of Health (the Department) includes the state Office of Public Health and one state lab servicing all nine public health regions. Initial testing for SARS-COV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] began in Louisiana's state lab on February 29, 2020. Louisiana has gone from a very limited amount of testing that was only available in our state lab to now having commercial labs across the state to complete and report as many tests as possible. Since then, more than 38,500 cases and 2,600 deaths associated with COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] have been identified in Louisiana. As of May 27, 2020, overall positivity in the State is 11.1% since the first case, reflecting 347,647 test results."
