MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) — Just a day after Gov. Mike DeWine gave a statewide address, Ohio broke another single-day case record as hospitalizations slowly overwhelm the states healthcare system.
Dr. Joseph Allen, regional medical director with Premier Health, said the spike can be attributed to several things:
- The state is testing people more often.
- People suffering from COVID-fatigue aren’t following guidelines.
- Small gatherings are happening more often.
With the threat of a potential shutdown, Allen thinks the next week or so will really determine the outcome.
