Total COVID-19 deaths in Ohio in 2020 to date: 3,537

Current day of the year: 216

Rough annualization of COVID-19 deaths [1]: 3537 * (1/(216/366)) = 5993

Non-comprehensive list of things that killed fewer Ohioans per year as of 2017 [2]:

  • Flu
  • Diabetes
  • Firearm deaths
  • Drug overdoses
  • Traffic Fatalities (source)
