A special press conference was sponsored by Governor Mike DeWine featuring medical leaders from across the state. There is an unprecedent spike in hospital admissions connected to the coronavirus crisis. Hospitals may be in dire straits in two to three weeks. It was also stated that a lockdown is not necessarily concerned prudent at this time as it would not bring sufficient benefit compared to the costs incurred.
