UPDATE: 10/15/20 6:15 P.M.

The Ohio Department of Health reported a record number of new coronavirus cases for the second straight day on Thursday, and Gov. Mike DeWine said nearly two-thirds of the state’s residents now live in counties that are red on the state’s public-health-advisory-system map.

Health officials reported 2,178 new cases Thursday afternoon, which followed 2,039 on Wednesday, numbers that leave the Buckeye State total at 175,843.

Thirteen more counties moved to red on Thursday, leaving the total at 29, and the daily hospitalization number remains on the rise, with DeWine noting in his afternoon briefing that the number has risen from 563 on Sept. 20 to 1,042 on Wednesday.

In addition, DeWine said 52 of the state’s 88 counties are now high-incidence counties as determined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those counties have all had more than 100 cases per 100,000 residents during the past week.

“It is not good," he said. “It will be tough, very tough, tough November, December, January, maybe February, who knows how long.”

DeWine called the statistics “ugly” and said they indicate the state could be in for big problems during the next few months. But he said that doesn’t have to be the case.

“We can avoid most of this pain,” he said. "We can avoid losing a lot more people than we should be losing. But we’ve got to doing the basic things.”

Those things include wearing a face covering, maintaining social distancing and avoiding large gatherings, all things that he said have proved to be effective ways to fight the virus.

Meanwhile, as of 2 p.m. Thursday, the health department’s COVID-19 dashboard showed 175,843 cases, 5,038 deaths, 16,824 hospitalizations, 3,507 admissions to intensive care and 147,063 presumed recoveries.
