Record Number Of Ohioans Hospitalized With COVID 19

Governor Mike DeWine today announced the latest COVID 19 numbers for the state during his latest press briefing. According to the latest state records 5,060 Ohioans are hospitalized with COVID-19, 1,180 in intensive care units and 682 on ventilators. Despite fewer reported new cases that number is an all time high for Ohio. The number of recovered patients is still very high also. According to Dr Andrew Thomas at OSU's Wexner Medical Center the situation is "becoming quite serious" "They're essentially going to start crowding out other people who need that level of care," Thomas said of the influx in new COVID-19 patients.
