ODH updates COVID death data twice a week. The data can fluctuate because other states do not regularly report death certificate data to Ohio’s Bureau of Vital Statistics. The day a death is reported does not reflect the day the death occurred.
For the third day in a row, more than 3,500 COVID-19 patients were hospitalized in Ohio.
The state recorded 3,557 hospitalized patients, with 994 in the ICU and 607 on ventilators.
Coronavirus patients account for 13.4% of hospital beds, 20.93% of ICU beds and 12.82% of ventilators, according to ODH. About 21.2% (5,636) of hospital beds, 20.49% (973) of ICU beds and 61.47% (2,911) of ventilators are available in Ohio as of Friday.
In the last day, Ohio recorded 307 hospitalizations and 33 ICU admissions. The state is averaging 216 hospitalizations a day and 20 ICU admissions a day over the last three weeks.
As of Friday, more than half of Ohioans have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine, including 64.33% of adults and 62.21% of those 12 and older.
About 49.25% of residents have finished the vaccine, including 59.79% of adults and 57.56% of those 12 and older.
