Ohio reports 1,236 new cases of coronavirus, 15 more deaths Staff




The Ohio Department of Health reported Monday 1,236 new cases of the novel coronavirus throughout the state.

The new batch of cases brings the state’s total number of cases up to 76,168.

Deaths in Ohio increased by 15 over Sunday’s data, with a total of 3,189 deaths of people with COVID-19 throughout the state.

Hospital admissions are up by 55 from Sunday, for a total of 9,610 hospitalizations statewide.

State health officials reported 29 additional admissions to intensive care units for a total of 2,344.

As coronavirus cases continue to surge throughout the state and the rest of the country, Gov. Mike DeWine said Sunday that Ohio can expect to see more coronavirus safety orders coming from his administration this week, adding that a statewide mask mandate is not being ruled out.

“While we did a great job early on in Ohio, we are headed in the wrong direction and frankly I’m very very concerned about that,” DeWine said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“We are at the point where we could become Florida. If you look at our numbers today versus where Florida was a month ago we have very similar numbers,” DeWine added.
