This week, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted encouraged Ohioans who have recovered from the coronavirus to donate plasma.

"Although the treatment of COVID-19 patients with convalescent plasma remains in the investigation stage, it shows promise to lessen the severity or shorten the length of COVID-19 and is something that could potentially save lives in our continual fight against the coronavirus,” he said.

Gov. Mike DeWine will not host a press conference discussing the state’s response to coronavirus today.
