Watch DeWine’s remarks in the player above.

The U.S. has surpassed 1 million new confirmed coronavirus cases since the start of November.

The death toll is also soaring and hospitals in several states are at the breaking point. Ohio reported 23 new deaths Tuesday.

The tally of cases in just 10 days shows the reach of the virus amid a strong fall surge.

Several states posted new highs Tuesday, including 12,000 new cases in Illinois and more than 7,000 in Wisconsin, where the governor planned to take the unusual step of delivering a live address to the state urging unity and cooperation to fight the virus.
