Ohio breaks record for most cases reported in a day for a third time
For the second day in a row, Ohio has broken records for the number of new reported cases of coronavirus in one day, hitting 2,178 cases on Thursday after getting reports of 2,039 cases on Wednesday. In addition, 5.4% of coronavirus tests are coming back positive, twice the rate Ohio had in late September. Public health officials are blaming the increased spread on social gatherings like weddings, funerals and bonfires, as well as people becoming complacent about mask orders.
