Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said that he has again tested negative for coronavirus, according to a statement released by his office.

DeWine had tested positive earlier in the week, but then later that day announced that via a separate test he tested negative.

The test that DeWine originally took was a rapid-result test and, according to The Associated Press, considered to be less accurate than the one he took later.
