WARREN — Trumbull County has reported a total of 4,806 cases of COVID-19 to date, which includes 48 new cases reported today, according to Trumbull County Combined Health District.
The district's release explained the data is incomplete due to issues with the reporting system. The Ohio Department of Health has been posting incomplete data since Wednesday due to a backlog of unverified cases.
Of those total reported cases, about 2,019 are presumed to be active infections.
The county reported one new death today. A total of 143 people have died in the county to date, according to the district.
The county is monitoring another 115 people in quarantine for symptoms of the virus. There are 224 people being quarantined for monitoring in the City of Warren. The county is not currently monitoring any additional “suspect cases” through the Ohio Disease Reporting System.
A total of 2,532 people in the county, including 925 from Warren, have completed quarantine periods and been released.
A total of 2,644 people in the county are presumed to have recovered from the virus as of Saturday, according to the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard. That metric is measured as the number of COVID-19 patients whose symptoms reportedly began more than 21 days ago but who have not died.
The county reported three new hospitalizations today. A total of 342 people have been hospitalized for COVID-19 in the county to date.
Of the county's total cases to date, 2,225 are male and 2,581 are female. Their ages range from infancy to 102 years old.
Trumbull County remains at level 3 “red” alert status under the Ohio Public Health Advisory System map, as the county meets three of the system's seven risk indicators:
The county has reported about 575.83 new cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks. Counties meet this indicator if reporting more than 50 cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks. The county also is considered to have a high incidence of coronavirus spread under CDC guidelines, as it has reported more than 100 cases per 100,000 people.
The county reported a consecutive, five-day increase in the seven-day average of new cases over the past three weeks. On Nov. 8, that average was nearly 88 new cases. It rose to an average of about 108 new cases on Nov. 13.
Between 87 percent and 99 percent of the county’s new cases in each of the last three weeks were reported outside of group settings such as long-term care or correctional facilities. Counties meet this indicator if weekly non-congregate cases from at least one of the last three weeks was more than 50 percent.
Trumbull County on Saturday had the 17th-highest number of total cases in the state, as well as the 10th-highest total deaths, according to ODH.
Trumbull County Combined Health District maintains a dedicated hotline to report complaints for violations of pandemic orders or guidelines, including the statewide mask order that took effect July 23. That number is 330-675-7841. The district urges residents not to call 911 for complaints.
