CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Former Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton is sounding the alarm as the coronavirus surges through every part of the state.

In an interview with the Columbus Dispatch, Acton, who resigned from the director position June 11, said the COVID-19 pandemic still has months to impact us.

Acton, who has been quiet since her resignation, said the current surge in cases is just the tip of the iceberg.

So this is the Titanic at this point and you cant turn the Titanic on a dime, Acton told the Dispatch. So, were going down. Its some amount of going down, so lets minimize the amount.

Acton, along with other experts at Ohio State University, projected the state could get to around 10,000 new COVID-19 cases a day. That kind of spike never happened during Actons time, however.
