Ohio reported 125 deaths Tuesday, bringing its total to 21,945, according to ODH. The state updates COVID-19 death data twice a week.
Data can fluctuate because other states don’t regularly report death certificate data to Ohio’s Bureau of Vital Statistics. The day a death is reported does not reflect the day the death occurred.
