Ohio State Wexner Medical Center doctors have identified new strains of COVID-19 in Ohio, one with a mutation identical to the virus spreading rapidly through the United Kingdom. 

There have been over a thousand new confirmed coronavirus cases in each of the last four days in Ohio, and Friday’s 33 confirmed new deaths is the highest number in a week. And attention has turned to testing after Gov. Mike DeWine got a positive result from a rapid test administered by the White House and a negative from a different kind of test a few hours later.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine got a call from President Trump Friday afternoon after missing out on a meeting with the president Thursday.

“I appreciated that very much,” DeWine said. “He wanted to see how I was doing and he said he had been told last night by the Secret Service that I actually tested negative. So, he was just calling to see how I was getting along. We had a good, good conversation.”
