COVID-19 Update: 16,169 Newly Confirmed Cases
Week of June 13, 2022
Today, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) reported 16,169 new COVID-19 cases and 445 new hospitalizations for the week.
The agency did not report any additional deaths from COVID. ODH indicated this week and last that there would be no additions to the state's COVID-19 death total on June 9 and 16 due to the installation of a new coding system.
The ODH also reported 2,815,069 confirmed cases, 38,857 deaths and 118,384 hospitalizations. The agency also reported 7,347,530 Ohioans have received at least one dose of the vaccine; this figure represents 62.86 percent - a low figure compared to numbers nationwide, which are approximately 83.0 percent of the populace.
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.
