CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - As of Friday, the Department of Health said 19,970 coronavirus deaths have been verified in the state of Ohio with at least 1,104,001 cases since the start of the pandemic.
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine did not schedule a regular COVID-19 briefing on Friday afternoon.
The 24-hour increase of 621 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.
