COVID-19 Update: 1,842 New Cases Reported Today
Feb. 24, 2021
Today, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported 1,842 new cases of COVID-19, 137 hospitalizations and 77 deaths. There is a disclaimer on the data saying the state continues to reconcile the data and the number of deaths will fluctuate.
Last week, ODH announced as many as 4,100 COVID-19 deaths may have been underreported through the state's system between October and December. The death counts had been higher for a few days because of the issue.
ODH also reported 959,991 confirmed cases, 17,045 deaths and 49,788 hospitalizations. Today, the department failed to report the number of presumed recoveries or the number of people who have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
