The state reported over 47,000 new cases last week
Last week, Ohio shattered new case and hospitalization records as coronavirus numbers continue to rapidly climb. The state reported over 47,000 new cases, 200 new deaths and 1,700 new hospitalizations from Monday, Nov. 9 to Sunday, Nov. 15. 5,246,480 people have been tested in Ohio as of Sunday.
In late March, former Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton urged people to “flatten the curve,” and was met with some skepticism when she warned the state could reach a devastating 6,000 to 8,000 cases per day if it stayed on the same path.
