LIVE: DeWine talks Hamilton County COVID-19 spike at Lunken Airport

- Advertisment -

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is breaking his usual Tuesday-Thursday briefing schedule for a Friday afternoon address at Lunken Airport, where he plans to discuss the ongoing COVID-19 spike in Hamilton County.

The virus is especially pronounced in Hamilton County, where health officials on Tuesday reported a “significant jump” of 954 new cases in a single week.

However, viral warning-bells are ringing all over Ohio — the state broke its 24-hour diagnosis record twice in the span of two days, and DeWine warned Thursday that almost every indicator measured by health experts was trending in the wrong direction. Diagnoses are up; outpatient doctor visits with COVID-like symptoms are up; the average patient is getting older, meaning they are more likely to experience serious complications as a result of the virus.
