CLEVELAND, Ohio – State of Ohio on Thursday, 16,159 new cases of COVID-19 reported in its weekly dashboard update, almost identical to last week’s new case number.
This week’s total cases averaged about 2,308 new cases a day over seven days. Cases remain well below the total number in January, hitting nearly 200,000 a week.
The total reported COVID-19 deaths since the onset of the pandemic was 38,778. However, weekly death rates will not be reported in the next few weeks because the National Center for Health Statistics recently implemented a new coding system and is in the process of reprocessing all 2022 deaths, the state said in a statement on its COVID-19 dashboard.
The Ohio Department of Health will continue to update the total reported COVID-19 deaths, but will not resume reporting weekly trends until reprocessing has been obtained, the agency said.
The death toll for COVID-19 was also not reported on June 9 and 16 due to a two-week break in the allocation of causes of death because the National Center for Health Statistics is implementing a new coding system, the state said.
The total number of cases of COVID-19 since the beginning of 2020 has now reached 2,831,228.
A total of 7,353,149 Ohioans have received at least one vaccination, representing about 66.8% of Ohioans 5 years and older.
Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 23,875 deaths among people reported as unvaccinated and 1,282 among people reported to be fully vaccinated. Since the beginning of 2021, there have been 69,874 inpatients who were not fully vaccinated and 4,886 fully vaccinated individuals admitted.
The state does not report for COVID-19 cases whether people have been vaccinated.
The total number of cases reported recently is likely to be underestimated, as some people do not report home tests and others may not test at all.
