As of today, there are 22,131 known COVID-19 cases in Ohio and 1,271 related deaths. This represents a 2.6 percent increase in cases and a 3.8 percent increase in deaths over the previous day.

Analysis of cases, deaths and hospitalizations by age cohort reveals that cases and to some extent hospitalizations are likely to occur among all age cohorts. Deaths however are dramatically more likely to occur among the elderly. Only eight (8) of the 1,271 Ohio deaths were accounted for by Ohioans younger than the age of forty, while 1,171 or 92.1% of Ohio deaths were accounted for by persons sixty and older.

  1. It is a frightening thought as Ohio re-opens businesses, that we may experience a surge in cases resulting in an increased number of deaths.
