Ohio Adding Thousands of COVID-19 Cases From Backlog

Manual reporting errors at two labs created the issue

COVID-19 case reports in Ohio will be inflated for three days as the state adds 7,699 positive test results from a backlog, officials said Tuesday.

"The backlog includes both new cases and updated information for cases that were previously recorded," officials said in a statement.
