COLUMBUS, Ohio – Governor Mike DeWine announced a coronavirus briefing for Monday, at a time when new cases are skyrocketing.
DeWine had previously said his next briefing would be Tuesday. However, new cases of COVID-19 have been on the rise for almost two weeks.
In mid-April, when intensive testing was taking place in Ohio jails, there were days with more than 1,300 new cases. But since then, the level of new cases has been lower.
However, on Friday and Saturday, there were 987 new cases each, which is a new record since mid-April.
