LATEST STATE DATA: As of Sunday afternoon, there are 35,513 cases in the state, 2,155 deaths, and 6,049 hospitalizations, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The Ohio Department of Health notes on its website that due to technical difficulties, several lab results were not received in time to be counted for the 2 p.m. update Saturday. However, the numbers will be added to today’s update.

Ohio has an estimated population of approximately 11.7 million, census records show.

Of the state’s positive cases, 19.5% are from Ohio’s prisons. At those prisons, there has been an increase in testing.

There have been 388,468 people tested for coronavirus in Ohio. In the state, 5,298 cases are health care workers, which is 15 percent of the cases.

It is important to note the number of confirmed cases is not a true reflection of actual cases in the state because of the limited amount of testing available. The hope is that the number of cases will be more accurate because of the expansion of the testing standards.
