Mike DeWine announced Thursday he has tested positive for COVID-19, disease caused by a new coronavirus. DeWine was tested Thursday as part of standard protocol as he prepared to greet President Donald Trump on the tarmac at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland, according to a news release issued Thursday afternoon by the governor's office. Less than 10 hours after the initial announcement, DeWine announced he had tested negative for coronavirus. The second round of testing was performed through a more sensitive test called polymerase chain reaction, or PCR test, which detects genetic material from new coronavirus, governor's office say. Earlier tests deliver rapid results by testing blood for antigens, but it is a relatively unproven technology. Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, who also was in Cleveland to greet the President, was negative, according to the governor's office. Trump is in Ohio to visit the Whirlpool manufacturing plant in Sandusky County and has a fundraiser planned later in Bratenahl. DeWine has no symptoms, and is returning to COLUMBUS where he will be tested again, as will Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine, governor's office say. He then will head to his home in Cedarville where he plans to self-quarantine for 14 days. Husted, meanwhile, continued with his plans to meet the President on the runway. DeWine will make himself available to the media via videoconference at 4: 30 pm today, governor's office will announce later Thursday. DeWine is 73, which places him in the higher-risk category for coronavirus patients. He also has a history of respiratory issues. He was hospitalized for six days in 2000, while member of the US Senate, while he was being treated for asthma. Hes had respiratory condition since he was 25 years old, and receive medication through inhalers, Toledo Blade reported at the time. DeWine become second US governor to test positive for COVID-19. Republican Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt test positive on July 15. He reported to work 12 days later and has declared himself recover, according to Tulsa World. DeWine, Republican, has become nationally prominent for his cautious approach to dealing with coronavirus, including being an early advocate for wearing facial masks. To try to encourage the public to get test, he received nasal swab on live television in late June as a demonstration. He test negative the next day. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March, DeWine, who once kept his calendar jammed packed with photo opportunities, has limited public appearances as he tries to encourage social distancing. In late June, he visited the former General Motors plant in Lordstown, promoting facility acquisition by a start-up electric vehicle company, in his first normal press conference in months. Officials in the governor's office say it is unlikely that many other staffers will have to be quarantined as result of the governors positive test. DeWine heads to COLUMBUS twice a week for his coronavirus briefings, but generally works from his home in Cedarville.
