Mahoning and Columbiana counties are rated Orange in the state’s color-coded Public Health Advisory System. In a press conference Thursday, Gov. Mike DeWine announced Trumbull County had been moved to a Red rating, which the county health district attributed to two outbreaks in the county.

A statement from the Trumbull County Combined Health District attributes the transition to two outbreaks that occurred during a seven-week period at two long-term care centers, which accounted for 47 of the cases in the county.

The county’s case numbers and hospitalizations, however, have been decreasing over the last two weeks, the district notes.

Of the total cases reported by ODH, 106,063 are confirmed. ODH reported 5,882 probable cases based on the CDC’s expanded case definition. There have been 12,615 hospitalizations and 2,844 intensive care admissions. And there have been 3,929 total deaths, which breaks down to 3,650 confirmed deaths and another 279 probable deaths under the CDC expanded diagnosis definition. The 21-day reported case average is 1,066.

The median age of those testing positive is 42. The state reports a presumed 91,656 Ohioans have recovered after testing positive. (Presumed recovered is defined as cases with a symptom onset date of greater than 21 days prior who are not deceased, according to the ODH website.)

Thus far, Ohio has conducted 1,905,419 tests. Of the positive tests, 12,576 or 11% are health care workers. CLICK HERE for a map of testing locations in the state.

And of all positive cases, 79% have recovered (If a case has not been reported as a death, and it is more than 30 days past the date of their first positive test [or onset of symptoms] then an individual is considered recovered, according to the health department’s website).
