Ohio Coronavirus News

The CEO of the Cleveland Clinic shows the number of COVID-19 cases in Ohio peaking later than anticipated.

Speaking on MSNBC Fri morning, Dr. Tomislav Mihaljevic said he expects confirmed cases to spike in mid-June.

Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton has said she expects the surge between mid-April and early May.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Ohio surpasses 3,000. In Friday's coronavirus briefing, Governor Mike DeWine said 3,312 Ohioans have tested positive for the virus.

The death toll, meanwhile, nears 100 - so far 91 people have died from the disease statewide.

Governor DeWine is asking county and local judges to grant early release to inmates at risk from COVID-19.

That group includes pregnant women, prisoners over the age of 60, and those who have less than 60 days until their sentences end.

The request is an attempt to stop the spread of the coronavirus behind bars.

DeWine says all inmates being considered for early release are non-violent offenders.
