New COVID-19 cases on an eight-day upswing in Ohio

The new coronavirus accelerated its spread over the last week in Ohio, an analysis of state data shows.

On Monday, the Ohio Department of Health published data showing 729 Ohioans contracted COVID-19, the most new cases reported in a 24-hour span since May 21.

The 10-day average of new cases has ticked upward for eight days in a row and counting.

Some of the new cases can be attributed to increases in testing. Since June 1, an average of about 12,200 people have been tested for COVID-19 per day, compared to 8,200 per day in May.

1. Some can be attributed to testing...

But I'd attribute much of the rest to opening indoors for restaurants, opening bars, and not mandating masks. I think we're in trouble, I worry it's only a matter of a couple of weeks before we're in as bad shape as Florida and Arizona.
