COLUMBUS, Ohio — There were 300 new coronavirus cases reported in Ohio Sunday and just three COVID-19-related deaths, the lowest numbers reported by the state since late March.

There are now a total of 41,148 total coronavirus cases in the state, according to the Ohio Department of Health. The number of cases reported Sunday - 300 - is the lowest reported in a day since March 31, when 266 cases were reported.

The Cleveland Department of Public Health was notified of 14 new positive COVID-19 test results in residents of the city and three new fatalities. There have been a total of 1,817 confirmed cases in Cleveland and 74 fatalities. Seven of the cases reported Saturday were transferred to the Cuyahoga County Board of Health because they occurred in long term care facilities and the individuals were not residents of Cleveland, according to city officials.

There have been 2,557 total coronavirus-related deaths, just three more than the number reported Saturday. This is the lowest number of daily deaths reported in Ohio since March 21, when a single death was reported, and the total death count was just eight.

Both new cases and deaths are well below the 21-day average, and these trend lines show a clear decline in all metrics over the past few days.
