Officials: Latest COVID-19 Surge Hasn’t Peaked in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Wisconsin health officials say the latest surge of COVID-19 infections due to the highly contagious delta variant has not yet peaked in the state.
The seven-day average of new cases as of Tuesday was 2,857, nearly double what it was two weeks ago and at a level not seen since early January before the vaccine was widely available.
Wisconsin Department of Health Services Secretary Karen Timberlake says, “We are not at a plateau yet, we are not at a leveling off.”
The 1,085 people hospitalized as of Tuesday were down slightly from the previous three days.
