Ohio USA – The Ohio Department of Health said eight new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed on Friday, bringing the statewide total now to 13.

The legislation is part of a deal between House Democrats and the White House. Trump said the bill will be voted on in the House Friday night.

Of the 13 confirmed cases, eight individuals who tested positive for coronavirus are males and five are female patients.

The median age of patients who tested positive is 48 years old with an age range spanning between 34 and 66, according to Director Amy Acton, of the Ohio Department of Health.

Additionally, 159 persons are currently under investigation for a possible infection, while Acton previously suggested that more than 100,000 state residents could already be carrying coronavirus.

That figure, along with the more than doubling in confirmed cases and persons under investigation for coronavirus prompted Gov. Mike DeWine to close all Ohio schools for at least three weeks, as well as order a ban on all mass gatherings of more than 100 people.

 

DeWine also ordered a ban on visitations to correctional institutions.
