The ODH has changed how it releases COVID-19 deaths in the state after conducting a review of the process. Deaths will be verified by coded death certificate information received from the National Center for Health Statistics, which can take some time to receive, according to a note on the ODH website. Death information is not available daily and will be updated twice a week moving forward. 

Ohio residents account for a total of 19,528 COVID-19 deaths, the ODH reported May 14; the median age of those who has died is 80.

The individuals who have tested positive range in age of less than a year to 111 years old; the median age is 41.

The total number of tests conducted in Ohio is 12,821,849. The daily percent positivity of confirmed laboratory tests is 2.8%, with a seven-day moving average of 3.5%, according to May 12 data reported by performing labs via ODH's electronic laboratory reporting system.

Cuyahoga County accounts for 112,954 of the cases, 6,819 hospitalizations and 2,134 deaths.

A total of 4,934,947 Ohioans (42.22% of the state's population) have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 4,320,777 Ohioans (36.96%) completed the vaccination process as of May 14.
