Earlier this week Gov. Mike DeWine credited the vaccine with the decrease in COVID cases, hospitalizations and deaths in Ohio.
The state reported 382 cases on Friday for a total of 1,108,528.
Cases have continued to drop in June for Ohio, with a 21-day cases average of 360 cases as of Friday. That’s more than half the 21-day average of 801 cases reported on June 1.
Ohio added 54 hospitalizations Friday, slightly above its 21-day average of 49.
The state reported four ICU admissions, bringing its total to 8,251.
Ohio also report 44 deaths Friday for a total of 20,166. The state updates death data twice a week. The data can fluctuate because other states do not regularly report death certificate information to ODH’s Bureau of Vital Statistics.
DeWine said Thursday Ohio is reporting about 10 deaths a day.
