COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW)– Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine held a news conference on the coronavirus pandemic Thursday afternoon.

The Ohio Department of Health said 1,448 COVID-19 cases, 112 hospitalizations and 10 intensive care unit admissions were reported in the last 24 hours. There have been 984,934 cases and 17,662 total deaths in the state.

More than 2 million people, about 18 percent of the state’s population, have been vaccinated, according to the state health department.

The state continues to inch towards the goal set by DeWine of less than 50 cases per 100,000 people. Once Ohio is at that level for two weeks, the governor will lift all remaining health orders.

As of Thursday, there were 155 COVID-19 cases per 100,000. That’s down significantly from 865 at the beginning of the year.
