Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton, standing next to Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, claimed on Thursday that over 100,000 people in the state have the coronavirus, which originated in China.
“This is certainly an unprecedented time,” Acton said. “It is this one in 50 years pandemic that we’ve been planning for, we talk a lot about in my over 30 years in public health, but we have never seen a situation exactly like this.”
“We know now, just the fact of community spread, says that at least 1%, at the very least 1% of our population is carrying this virus in Ohio today,” Acton later claimed. “We have 11.7 million people, so the math is over a 100,000. So that just gives you a sense of how this virus spreads and is spreading quickly.”
