NEW ORLEANS The Louisiana death toll from the coronavirus pandemic rose Sunday but the rate of infection appeared to have slowed dramatically, according to figures released by the Louisiana Department of Health.
The state had a total of 3,540 confirmed cases as of noon CDT Sunday, compared to 3,315 on March 28.
That increase of 225 cases, or less than 7%, marks a dramatic flattening of the curve Louisiana had experienced last week, when the percentage rise was as high as 28% on some days.

LOL, One day is not a trend.
Yeah, Probably not a lot of testing going on on Saturday in Louisiana. Hospital cases, but not doctor’s offices.
Washington Times indulging in a little fake news of their own.
Difference is that they’ll get called on it.
The nation’s (USA) rate of increase has decreased for four days in
a row. I’m watching closely to see what happens today.
Not testing. They test for flu, flu is negative, they know it’s Covid-19.
Look on YouTube today of all the hospitals in NYC that look almost empty. People are slugging it out with this flu at home. Sorry not Ebola or H1NI, more the regular flu with an attitude.
Open it up Trump, it's hype
Seems to me to be a quick-and-dirty common sense method to test.
I got to give it to you guys. You’re committed to your worldview. Actually ROOTING for people to die. It shows just how much you hate your fellow man. Real Christian values, that.
lol... ya right... the day after they spiked to 7th place in numbers among the states. preciously they were like no. 20. lets see what Monday and Tuesday bring.
I’m sick of hearing that the death toll rose. The death toll can only go up. How about reporting something meaningful like the trend of daily deaths?
PDJT it is Sun Tzu time.
This is the bayou country, mon ami. Get out your accordions and celebrate the anecdotal evidence with a beautiful woman!/s
Yes let’s just laugh and assume we’re all going to die. We are waiting for us to become Italy and China. We will be like New York City. We will all die die die. What continuous Chicken Little morons we still have here. Why don’t you go over to the Slate.
I was rooting for travel bans and quarantines back in January. Some happened, some didn't. Enough didn't, that now we have a growing mess.
I was rooting for ramping testing, which eventually happened and is still ramping.
Now I'm rooting for manufacture of masks and goggles to ramp so that everyone can wear a mask. Then society can open back up and the transmission is greatly lowered. That's how you stop this thing.
Maybe they stopped sweating on each other.
Louisiana is a state where warm weather and sunshine should be taking hold as spring arrives.
The good folks of Louisiana need to get outside, get fresh air, and sunshine.
These are very, very powerful antidotes to any virus.
