CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The city recorded 46 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 coronavirus and one new death, Mayor Frank Jackson’s administration announced Tuesday.

The newly confirmed cases involved patients ranging in age from six years old into their 70s.

As of Tuesday, the total number of new cases confirmed in the city since March stood at 25,485, the city reported.

The deaths of 398 Clevelanders have been attributed to the coronavirus. The average age of those who died was 73 years old.

In addition, the health department has identified 1,760 probable cases. That figure, using an expanded definition from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, captures suspected cases where there is no confirmed test.

Cleveland had recorded a total of 27,245 cases as of Tuesday.

Those infected have ranged in age from less than 1 year old to more than 100 years old. The average age is 45 years old.

Six percent of those cases required hospitalization.

Fifty-four percent of the cases involve women. About 40% of all those infected are African American. About 28% are white. Other races account for 12% of the patients. Race is unknown for 18% of the cases.

The Cleveland Department of Public Health reports that 6,265patients have been released from isolation, 70 more than on Thursday.

Across the state, 981,618 coronavirus cases had been tallied as of Tuesday. That is up 1,893 from Monday’s total, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

The number of Ohioans who have died with COVID-19 remains at 17,502. The state is no longer daily updating this figure and the number is from Friday, when the federal government most recently updated it.

Meanwhile, 6 a.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday, another 38,306 people were reported to have received at least a first dose of vaccine. This number includes Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which are just one dose.

That pushed the total number of people given their first dose to 2.03 million – about 17% of Ohio’s population.
