YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County now has had 1,654 confirmed cases of COVID-19 — 15 more than reported Saturday, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The county also reported no new virus-related deaths today, keeping the total number of deaths to 224.

Saturday's report contained four new coronavirus cases and one additional death.

Mahoning has the fourth-most deaths and eighth-most cases among Ohio's 88 counties.

Of the total cases, 339 people have been hospitalized, one more than in Saturday's report.

Of the county's first 223 total deaths, 77 percent were reported at county long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes, according to a release on Friday from Mahoning County Public Health.

In 99 percent of those reported deaths, patients had underlying health conditions, according to the agency.

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.
