COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--New numbers on the coronavirus outbreak in Ohio continue to show downward trends for new cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

The latest figures Sunday showed 300 new cases, 31 new hospitalizations, and just 3 more deaths.

Over the last 21 days, Ohio has averaged 440 cases a day, 68 new hospitalizations a day, and 28 deaths per day.

Sunday's numbers on new deaths are the lowest for the state since the pandemic began, back in March.
