Fewer than 800 New COVID-19 Cases Reported in Ohio Sunday


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Ohio's new coronavirus cases dropped below 800 on Sunday.

The Ohio Department of Health reported 735 new cases on Sunday, the lowest total for a single day since October.

Hospitalizations and ICU admissions also remained below the 21-day average.

While the new daily case number is promising, it's still not near where it needs to be before Mike DeWine considers lifting the state's COVID-19 health orders.

Last week, DeWine said if the state remains below 50 cases per 100,000 people for two straight weeks, then he would lift the orders. That means new daily cases would need to stay below 400.

The has reported about 978,000 cases since the pandemic began, with approximately 923,000 of those cases recovered.
