Coronavirus

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW)— Cleveland Clinic CEO Dr. Tom Mihaljevic offered new insight into the coronavirus pandemic Friday morning.

Mihaljevic, while discussing how the Clinic is preparing for a surge in patients, told FOX 8 News, “What we can say right now is that our curve here over the last 5 to 6 days has begun to look very favorable in Ohio; meaning that we believe that we are flattening the curve. If we continue to be as effective as early data suggests, we are going to see the peak of activity most likely between mid-May and mid-June… the tail end of the pandemic could last into mid-July as well.”

On Thursday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said, “We don’t know when we will hit the peak — between April 15- May 15. It changes based on the info we have.”

As of Thursday afternoon, the Ohio Department of Health’s latest numbers showed 2,902 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 81 deaths.
