COVID-19 Update: 19,536 Newly Confirmed Cases

Week of May 16, 2022

Today, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported 19,536 new COVID-19 cases and 473 new hospitalizations for the week.

The agency also reported 40 additional deaths from COVID.

The ODH also reported 2,743,577 confirmed cases, 38,788 deaths and 116,402 hospitalizations. The agency also reported 7,327,581 Ohioans have received at least one dose of the vaccine; this figure represents 62.69 percent - a low figure compared to numbers nationwide. 

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.
