Kudos to Ohio

The state’s early preparation may be paying off

The Washington Post reports that Ohio took early and aggressive precautions in the coronavirus outbreak, and that those measures might be working out in the state’s favor. Ohio’s governor canceled a fitness expo expected to draw 60,000 people to the state in early March, and the Cleveland Clinic rapidly increased its treatment capacity, the paper reports. Ohio has a high degree of testing and around 5,148 positive cases and 193 deaths, which is lower than neighboring states.
