Columbus (WCMH) —The Ohio Department of Health has published the latest COVID-19 cases in the state.
As of April 30, a total of 1,072,312 (+1,541) cases have been reported since the pandemic began, leading to 56,400 (+128) hospitalizations. A total of 4,683,125 Ohio people (40.06% of the state’s population) have begun the vaccination process. This is an increase of 25,554 from the previous day.
The Ministry of Health reported 96 deaths on Friday, bringing the state to a total of 19,284. The state updates the total number of deaths, usually twice a week, after the death certificate has been processed.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has announced changes to state quarantine guidelines from the Cleveland State University Mass Immunization Clinic. Fully vaccinated people do not need to be quarantined when exposed to people infected with COVID-19. It is considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after receiving the final dose.
In reviewing the state’s COVID-19 data, DeWine said he hoped that the recent increase in case numbers had peaked and began to decline.
The state case rate per 100,000 inhabitants over a two-week period was reported last Thursday at 155.6. DeWine has set a benchmark of 50 to lift the pandemic health order in the state. He shows that a replacement benchmark may be in progress.
