Explore5 days, nearly 15,000 new coronavirus cases in Ohio this week

Over the last week, Ohio has reported nearly 20,000 new cases of coronavirus, topping out with a record-breaking 3,845 cases Friday, according to the ODH.

Friday also was Ohio’s second day in a row reporting more than 3,000 cases, which also broke the daily case record Thursday and Friday.

“Despite today’s grim data, I’m optimistic,” Gov. Mike DeWine said Thursday. “Ohioans have the tools, they know what works, and we always rally when we need to rally. I know people will do that. We can slow down this invader. The decisions each Ohioan makes each day will determine what kind of winter we have.”

As of Thursday, Ohio’s five highest days for hospitalizations had all been reported in the last week and a half.
