COVID-19 Continues in Ohio Nursing Homes
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The coronavirus curve in Ohio refuses to trend downward. State health officials from Ohio are not surprised that the number of COVID-19 cases in the state has not shown a significant downward trend because of the large number of nursing home residents and residents in long-term care facilities who tested positive. Health officials say that most nursing home residents are mostly older people who are at an elevated risk of becoming infected. Almost three out of every four coronavirus cases in Ohio are connected to a nursing home or long-term healthcare facility, according to an article appearing on Dispatch.com. Comparatively, only 677 people in Ohio who did not live or work in a nursing home or prison contracted COVID-19. *
Statistics show that approximately 317 cases of COVID-19 come from nursing homes or long-term care facilities each day. State prison inmates account for fourteen cases per day. All other citizens of Ohio accounted for 97 new coronavirus cases each day or almost 23 percent of COVID-19 cases.
Administrators from nursing homes and long-term care centers believe that the number of positive tests from facilities in Ohio is high because of increased testing.
