Doctor predicts ‘big spike’ in area COVID cases, hospitalizations

This map shows the data collected from sewage plants in Ohio where instances of COVID-19 virus found in the waste are monitored. Red (the worst) and yellow indicate a rise in COVID virus while blue indicates a steady number.

It’s a bit complicated sorting out just where we are in northern Ohio when it comes to the coronavirus.

Hospitalizations and the number of reported cases are trending up, but not at an alarming rate just yet. 

However, health officials say that doesn’t mean we are in the clear.

The virus is still silently among us and appears to be spreading and heading toward what one doctor predicts will be a “big spike” in cases and hospitalizations.

Part of the problem in gauging just where we are with the disease centers around one of the solutions for combating and detecting its spread.

The wide, free distribution of home tests means folks with mild symptoms thanks to vaccinations are staying off the radar and riding out the illness at home. They are simply not notifying health officials of positive results.
