Top Ohio Health Official Estimates 100,000 in State Have Coronavirus

On Wednesday night President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the White House on the Coronavirus pandemic. 

President Trump announced a 30 day ban on flights from Europe.

There have been 37 deaths blamed on the coronavirus in the US.
There have been 1,636 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US.
At least 23 of those deaths were at the Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington.
The Life Care Center has gone from 120 residents down to 60 in the past month.
The current mortality rate in the US is 2.2%.
If you subtract the Life Center deaths the total goes down to .8%.
But there is widespread speculation that the official estimate of those infected by the virus is much higher.
We will only know this after tens of thousands of tests are conducted on the American public.
The top Ohio health official in Ohio estimated on Thursday that 100,000 people in the state are infected with coronavirus.
The Hill reported:
A top health official in Ohio estimated on Thursday that more than 100,000 people in the state have coronavirus, a shockingly high number that underscores the limited testing so far.
Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton said at a press conference alongside Gov. Mike DeWine (R) that given that the virus is spreading in the community in Ohio, she estimates at least 1 percent of the population in the state has the virus.
“We know now, just the fact of community spread, says that at least 1 percent, at the very least, 1 percent of our population is carrying this virus in Ohio today,” Acton said. “We have 11.7 million people. So the math is over 100,000. So that just gives you a sense of how this virus spreads and is spreading quickly.”
