CLEVELAND (WJW) – The Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) reports a further 23 cases of coronavirus in the general population.
According to a press release, this results in a total of 4,178 cases and 88 deaths in the city.
New confirmed cases are men and women between the ages of 20 and 70. CDPH seeks to establish close links that would require investigation or monitoring of COVID-19 symptoms.
City health officials posted a chart on a social network earlier Thursday to help citizens identify what symptoms they should look for.
The latest Cleveland numbers come after the state of Ohio reported a one-day record of 1,733 cases of coronavirus.
A total of 89,626 confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases have been reported since the start of the pandemic, including an additional 1,733 cases reported on Thursday, as well as a total of 3,442 deaths.
64,311 Ohioans are thought to have recovered from the virus.
Thirteen counties, including Kujahoga County, where Cleveland is located, now have a level 3 public health alert.
Friday at 2:30 p.m. Cuyahoga County Governor Armond Budish and the County Health Board will hold a virtual media briefing to provide updates and data on the COVID-19 pandemic in Cuyahoga County.
Citizens can follow the briefing on the county’s Facebook and YouTube pages.
Meanwhile, Governor Mike DeWine’s mask mandate remains in place for the entire state of Ohio. The face mask should be worn in public places and outdoors when it is not possible to separate six feet.
In addition, Ohio health leaders also recommend that citizens avoid minor travel. Ohio travelers traveling in high-risk areas (listed below) should leave quarantine for 14 weeks when leaving these locations.
