A Hoosier doctor says Indiana is now in a fourth wave of COVID-19 infections.
For weeks, coronavirus cases and deaths have been on a steep decline, but now there are more infections and hospitalizations in states across the country.
Indiana is one of them.
Dr. Amy Beth Kressel, infectious disease specialist at Eskenazi Health, is linking the increased positivity rates to the growing number of virus mutations.
Kressel points to the U.K. variant specifically.
The mutation is sweeping the country and has become the most dominant COVID-19 cousin in the U.S. to date.
