Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Friday that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
DeWine was diagnosed Friday by his personal physician. He has been experiencing mild symptoms such as a runny nose, headache, body aches, and a sore throat, according to a tweet.
Fran, the governor’s wife, is experiencing no symptoms and has tested negative. Both the governor and his wife are fully vaccinated, including a booster shot.
Early Friday evening, DeWine received a monoclonal antibody treatment. The treatment is infused with lab-produced antibodies that mimic the immune system’s defenses against the COVID-19 virus.
A tweet from the governor’s Twitter account said that DeWine is following the CDC’s COVID-19 diagnosis protocol and quarantining.
DeWine tested positive for COVID-19 in August 2020, just before he was set to greet former President Trump in Cleveland but had no symptoms. A rapid antigen test later showed the result of DeWine’s test was a false positive.
