COVID-19 Update: 3,668 Newly Confirmed Cases
Week of March 21, 2022
Today, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported 3,668 new COVID-19 cases and 193 new hospitalizations for the week.
The agency also reported 185 additional deaths from COVID.
The ODH also reported 2,669,698 confirmed cases, 37,991 deaths and 113,667 hospitalizations. The agency also reported 7,274,030 Ohioans have received at least one dose of the vaccine; this figure represents 62.23 percent - a low figure compared to numbers nationwide. The national figure is 77 percent.
On March 14, 2022, the ODH announced it will only report COVID-19 data weekly rather than daily. This is in response to a significant decrease in cases and hospitalizations statewide. It will only be reported on Thursday; thus, OSAP will only report it on Thursdays, too.
