Twitter

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has high praise for colleges and universities  that have brought down their COVID-19 positivity rate, but he wants to see residential schools use testing to get a better picture of the rate of infection on their campus. 

The vast majority of children dying from COVID-19 are Hispanic, Black or Native American, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Researchers analyzed the number of coronavirus cases and deaths among people under the age of 21 that were reported to the CDC between Feb. 12 and July 31 of this year. They found more than 390,000 cases and 121 deaths.
