A 56-year-old man with the coronavirus attending a single church service in Ohio led to the infection’s spread to at least 91 other people across five counties.
Gov. Mike DeWine posted a graphic to his Facebook page Wednesday detailing how the virus spread over a three-week period from the date of the church service on June 14 to July 4.
“It spread like wildfire,” the governor said at a news conference Tuesday where the graphic was displayed. “Very, very scary.”
On Thursday, DeWine’s office said in a statement that he had tested positive for the coronavirus, but later said a second test, a PCR test, conducted later came back negative. DeWine will be tested again Saturday.
