Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine spoke at a COVID-19 vaccination site in the Cincinnati area at 2 p.m. on Friday.

The 24-hour increase of 1,004 reported cases is a cumulative of all positive test results as a lagging indicator the Ohio Department of Health received on Friday; not a total number of new infections reported in a single day.

An additional 177,824 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 58,501 total hospitalizations reported on Friday, at least 8,041 individuals were admitted to intensive care units.
