ICUs are reporting a similar trend during that same time period. Ohio and the west central region both recorded an 84% drop in the last 60 days, and southwest Ohio saw a 72% decline.
Of the 195 ICU patients with COVID in Ohio, 47 were in southwest Ohio and 16 were in west central Ohio, according to OHA.
In the last day the state added 117 coronavirus hospitalizations and six ICU admissions, according to the Ohio Department of Health. Ohio is averaging 136 hospitalizations a day and 15 ICU admissions a day over the last three weeks.
Ohio added 242 COVID deaths, bringing its total to 36,822, according to ODH. The state updates death data twice a week. Data can fluctuate because other states don’t regularly report death certificate data to Ohio’s Bureau of Vital Statistics.
The day a death is reported does not reflect the day it occurred.
The state reported 1,051 COVID cases Tuesday, making it the fourth straight day fewer than 1,500 daily cases have been recorded in Ohio. The state’s 21-day average is 1,804 coronavirus cases a day, according to the state health department.
