Ohio, like other parts of the country, has experienced shortages in testing. DeWine said this is due to a number reasons, including a lack of swabs and a lack of access to reagent.

Earlier this week, the FDA approved a new reagent developed by Thermo Fisher.

DeWine announced Friday a new partnership with that company.

When it comes to swabs, DeWine said that Cleveland company ROE Dental Lab will manufacture up to 1 million swabs. The company usually creates dental supplies.
