Ohio reports 1,104 new cases of coronavirus; total surpasses 85,000 Staff




The Ohio Department of Health reported 1,104 new confirmed and probable cases of the novel coronavirus Monday.

Monday’s new batch of positive cases brings the state’s total number of confirmed and probable coronavirus cases to 85,177.

State health officials said Monday the number of people who have died with COVID-19 increased by 37, for a total of 3,344 deaths throughout the state.

There is a lag between the time new COVID-19 cases and deaths occur and when they are reported by the Ohio Department of Health. A delay also exists when local health departments report the information to the state, so the number of increases in cases and deaths doesn’t necessarily mean they all occurred in the past 24 hours.

The Ohio Department of Health says a total of 10,285 coronavirus-related hospitalizations have taken place throughout the state, as of Monday.

Intensive care unit admissions also increased Monday, for a total of 2,466.

The age range of those infected in Ohio remains from less than 1-year-old up to 109-years-old. The median age is 42-years-old, according to the Ohio Department of Health.
