The Ohio Department of Health on Monday reported 737 new cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The new cases bring the total number of positive cases in the state to 51,046.
There have been 11 more deaths over Sunday’s data, leading to a total of 2,818 deaths of people with COVID-19.
Additionally, there have been 7,746 hospitalizations throughout Ohio, and 1,961 admissions to intensive care units.
Gov. Mike DeWine said during a previously unscheduled press conference Monday that there is a positive virus test rate of 4.7%. Experts say the rise in new cases is not entirely due to increased testing, DeWine noted.
You may be wondering if the increased cases are simply because Ohio has worked so hard to ramp up our testing. Certainly, some is due to that, but not entirely. You have to look at positivity. pic.twitter.com/gVd83QInl6
