County health officials encourage people to wear masks, get vaccinated and perform coronavirus tests to stay safe.

TALEDA, Ohio – COVID-19 cases rise again in Lucas County Toledo-Lucas County Department of Health announced Monday.

The average number of cases in the county per day is now 38.14, an increase over the previous two weeks when the average daily number of cases was 22.36.

There were also 264.3 cases per 100,000 people in the county. This is almost 200 percent more than the average for the previous two weeks.

County health officials are urging residents to prevent the spread of coronavirus and avoid serious illness in several ways. In particular, people at risk of serious illness should consider wearing a face mask, health officials said.

Health officials are also urging people to stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines and additional vaccinations. To schedule an appointment to get vaccinated or vaccinated, check Department of Health website.

An increase in the number of cases occurs when in the United States since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, the number of deaths from coronavirus exceeded 1 million.

Three out of four deaths there were people 65 years and older. More men died than women. Most of the deaths were generally white. But blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans were about twice as likely to die from COVID-19 than their white counterparts.

Most of the deaths took place in urban areas, but rural areas – where the opposition to masks and vaccinations tends to run high – sometimes paid a high price.

The death toll less than 2 and a half years after the outbreak is based on death certificates collected by the National Center for Health Statistics of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the actual number of lives lost to COVID-19, directly or indirectly, as a result of health system disruptions in the world’s richest country, is considered much higher.

The milestone came more than three months after the U.S. reached 900,000 deaths. The pace slowed after a terrible winter surge caused by the amicron variant. In the U.S., an average of about 300 deaths from COVID-19 per day compared to a peak of about 3,400 per day in January 2021.
