Ohio’s COVID-19 cases drop for third consecutive week

by Aug 19, 2022Health, Local News

For the third week in a row, the weekly number of COVID-19 cases in Ohio has dropped.

The state of Ohio on Thursday reported 24,067 new cases of COVID-19 in its weekly dashboard update, down 1,949 from a week ago.

Ohio has been over 10,000 cases per week every week since the beginning of May. Cases had been rising steadily since mid-June, peaking for the summer on July 28 at 29,876. The numbers began dropping in August, and the trend seems to be continuing.

This week’s case total averages to about 3,438 cases per day over seven days. That’s lower than last week by about 278 cases per day.

Total reported COVID-19 deaths since the beginning of the pandemic were 39,310.

The total COVID-19 case count since early 2020 has now reached 3,026,110.

A total of 7,435,631 Ohioans have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination, representing about 67.3% of Ohioans age 5 and up.

Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 24,360 deaths among people reported as unvaccinated, and 1,328 among people reported to be fully vaccinated. Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 74,184 hospitalized Ohioans who were not fully vaccinated, and 5,401 fully vaccinated people hospitalized.

The state does not report for COVID-19 cases whether people were vaccinated.

The total cases being reported recently likely are understated, as some people do not report at-home tests and others may not be testing at all.
