CLEVELAND — The city of Cleveland, like the state of Ohio, has seen consecutive days with decreased daily positive COVID-19 test results.

On Sunday the Cleveland Department of Public Health (CDPH) was notified of four new positive COVID-19 tests in Cleveland residents, marking the second straight day of decreased numbers.

There were 15 positive tests reported on Saturday, down from the 36 positive tests reported on Friday.

There have been 575 total confirmed cases in the city to date.

CDPH said the new cases include both males and females, whose ages range from less than 20-years-old to in their 50s, the city of Cleveland said.

There have been a total of 26 fatalities, including two newly reported deaths on Sunday. Both of the new fatalities were female, one in her 90s and one in her 70s. A man in his 70s died as a result of the virus on Saturday, the city said.

CDPH is working to identify those who may have come into close contact with the residents who tested positive for potential testing or monitoring, according to CDPH.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Ohio has dropped for the fourth day in a row, according to numbers released by the Ohio Department of Health.
