COVID-19 Update, 2020-10-20
The following map shows cumulative COVID-19 infections by county. Communities shaded in darker gray have higher cases per 100,000 population than counties with lighter shading. The light red circles depict total infections.
For the most part, infection rates tend to be higher in and around Ohio's urban centers, with Franklin County presenting the highest rate and the highest number of total cases.
On a more positive note, the next graph shows the percentage of identified cases resulting in death for Ohio's three largest metropolitan counties, by month. The data show a remarkable reduction in the ratio of deaths to cases, an important accomplishment for Ohio's healthcare system.
