As several states start to see a surge in COVID-19 cases since reopening, Ohio has not.
Ohio has gradually lifted its stay-at-home order over the past six weeks. The result: a plateau in newly reported cases and a decline in hospitalizations, both reported and estimates of people currently hospitalized. The trend in New York is also looking good right now.
Florida, meanwhile, has had a noteworthy increase. Critics are saying Gov. Ron DeSantis is letting the outbreak get out of control but he is attributing the rise to more testing among low-risk individuals. He says he won’t roll back reopening efforts.
CNN takes it a step further. They talked to an expert who said the state has the makings of becoming the “next large epicenter.”
