Backlog of positive COVID cases to be added to daily counts this week
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A backlog of positive COVID-19 tests dating back to March will be reflected in the daily reporting on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week.
The exact number of cases will be reflected in a disclaimer on the dashboard each day.
The backlog of approximately 7,699 positive cases was caused by manual reporting errors at two laboratories. It includes both new cases and updated information for cases that were previously recorded.
