LATEST STATE DATA: As of yesterday afternoon, there are 35,984 cases in the state, 2,206 deaths, and 6,112 hospitalizations, according to the Ohio Department of Health.
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 398,066 people tested for coronavirus in Ohio. In the state, 5,343 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.
