Greater Cincinnati COVID-19 Situational Awareness report

WILMINGTON — Over 2,500 Clinton Countians contracted COVID-19 in just January of 2022 — about 6 percent of the total population — with 14 local deaths. And with some cases unreported, including at-home tests, the true total number of cases could be much higher.

The numbers are as of Wednesday afternoon’s reported cases on the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard.

Since the first pandemic numbers were reported by the state in early 2020, Clinton County has totaled 10,113 cases — over 24 percent of the local population — with 146 deaths and 262 hospitalizations, the state reports as of Wednesday.

The state’s latest statistics show that 94 percent of people hospitalized due to COVID-19 are unvaccinated, Clinton County Health Commissioner Pamela Walker-Bauer said.

About 48 percent of Clinton Countians have been fully vaccinated.

She reiterates that the prevention message is pretty much the same as it has been throughout the pandemic:

• Get vaccinated. Get your booster when eligible.

• Facial coverings/masking will add another layer of protection for everyone. These need to be quality masks/coverings with several layers.

• Distancing and good ventilation remain helpful. Open a window/door, increase air flow.

• Clean surfaces and wash your hands.

• Stay home if you are sick!

Statewide

The state reports that, through Wednesday, over 2.6 million Ohioans have had COVID-19, with over 109,000 hospitalizations and 34,592 deaths.
