YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County now has 1,727 confirmed cases of COVID-19 to-date, 22 more than reported by the state Sunday.
Mahoning County Public Health also reported three new hospitalizations from Sunday, for a total of 354. There were no new deaths reported Monday; the total number of deaths remains at 227.
The agency is now reporting county case and death data twice per week and presenting them in graphs which show weekly trends since the first case was reported in the county.
The agency's first-such report last week included the number of total cases and deaths reported each week since March 16. Graphs provided since then, however, have not.
"Numbers are not reported on the graphs due to potential differences between the timing of Ohio Department of Health and MCPH data downloading from the Ohio Disease Reporting System," reads Monday's release from the county.
The county also did not provide a breakdown of the county's coronavirus cases by ZIP code, as requested by Mahoning Matters earlier this month. Mahoning Matters' public records request is currently under review by county prosecutors.
The agency notes the number of deaths is according to the date they were reported, rather than the actual date of death, as COVID-19 death reporting may be delayed. The figures do not represent the number of people who have died in the past 24 hours and also include confirmed and probable deaths.
