As we hear more and more about coronavirus world wide, we will take a look at what it looks like here in our state. More people are being tested for the coronavirus in Wisconsin.

The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said there are five new cases out for testing. That makes six pending cases. So far, all but one of the people who’ve been tested for the virus have come back as not sick. Doctors say Wisconsin’s only confirmed coronavirus patient has fully recovered.

While we are chatting about it, there is a reminder not to panic as well. It’s one thing to be prepared, it’s another thing to hoard.

Doctors and pharmacists across Wisconsin say there is no need for people to load-up on face masks and hand sanitizer out of fears of the coronavirus. Some stores and pharmacies are reporting shortages. The CDC says your best bet for not getting sick, whether from the coronavirus or anything else, is to wash your hands and stay away from people who are sick. Doctors say common sense is as good as anything.
