CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - As of Saturday, the Ohio Department of Health reported 1,010,603 total coronavirus cases in the state since the start of the pandemic.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine did not schedule a regular COVID-19 briefing on Saturday.

The 24-hour increase of 1,690 reported cases is a cumulative of all positive test results as a lagging indicator the Ohio Department of Health received on Saturday; not a total number of new infections reported in a single day.

New death statistics are not reported by the Ohio Department of Health daily.

An additional 153,123 total cases are presumed to be linked to COVID-19 under the CDC expanded definitions and included in the Ohio Department of Health’s reporting.

Out of the 52,687 total hospitalizations reported on Saturday, at least 7,387 individuals were admitted to intensive care units.
