Ohio’s Coronavirus Daily Rate Jumped from 3% to 4%

Ohio’s coronavirus daily positivity rate jumped from 3% to 4%.

Governor Mike DeWine announced the spike in 11 Ohio counties, reporting 1,327 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday night.

A daily rate that changes for one percent in 24 hours is an alarming sign for the state’s medical authorities, and they warn on a new increase in the following days.

The governor, however, is more optimistic, saying, “We’re watching that, we don’t know whether that’s a long-term trend or not, we certainly hope it is not.”

Ohio health officials are marking 11 counties as red zones, which is a higher number than what the state had in September.

In September, there were seven red counties in Ohio, while the start of October adds Clermont, Hamilton, Muskingum, and Richland County to the list.

According to the governor, people who traveled out of state brought back the virus to Ohio and spread it to the local population.

Wearing a mask and keeping social distancing are still the two essential forms of protection from the virus, and people must respect these measures for everybody’s sake.

Ohio lost 4,817 people to the virus, while 155,314 Ohioans tested positive.
