Ohio is continuing to report more coronavirus cases stemming from variants, with 310 cases reported as of Tuesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Gov. Mike DeWine and state health officials have echoed concerns about increases in variants cases, especially with some variants believed to be more contagious and to cause more severe cases of COVID.
On March 22, Ohio Department of Health Chief Medical Officer Bruce Vanderhoff said the state had 173 variant cases, nearly a 150 case increase from the 32 cases reported two weeks ago.
In approximately 10 days, that number has increased by 137 cases.
