CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - As of Tuesday, the Department of Health said 5,373 Ohioans have died from the coronavirus with at least 226,138 cases reported statewide since the start of the pandemic.

The 24-hour record increase of 4,229 reported cases is a cumulative of all positive test results as a lagging indicator the Ohio Department of Health received on Tuesday; not a total number of new infections reported in a single day.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is not holding a briefing on Tuesday, but 19 News still provided live Election Day and COVID-19 coverage with the latest data.
