Two additional COVID-19-related deaths are reported in Wayne County, the state Department of Health and Human Services said Friday evening. There has been one death in the county because of the coronavirus.

KDHE's online map noted that 1,091 Douglas County residents have been tested for the disease so far. Of those, 445 are negative.

The Johns Hopkins COVID-19 Dashboard now lists that more than 3.2 million people have been tested in the U.S. Of the states, OH has the 13th-most number of tests administered, with 71,552 people tested.

Vinton remains the only one of Ohio's 88 counties that has not reported a single case of COVID-19. There were 57 people in quarantine/isolation on Friday.

No COVID-19 cases have been reported in Newark or Millbrook, the data shows.

The Whatcom County Health Department reported Friday, April 17, that, once again, there are zero new deaths associated with the illness.

The new cases are a Carson City woman in her 60s and a Douglas County woman in her 30s. The southwest corner of the county has the most cases, 14. That number is more than the combined total of the next four countries with the most cases (Spain, Italy, Germany, France).

The individual is a man who lives in the southwestern part of the county and has no significant travel history, according to the press release. It's likely the true number of people that have the disease is higher than what has been reported, as a limited testing capacity has restricted the number of people who can be screened.

The Illinois Department of Public Health has established a 24-hour COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-889-3931 to answer questions.

If you are feeling ill, isolate yourself at home and call a medical provider if symptoms worsen.
