If you don’t stay at home for the next month, Wisconsin’s top public health official says tens of thousands of people could get sick and more than a thousand could die.
Department of Health Services boss Andrea Palm yesterday predicted that if people ignore Governor Tony Evers’ ‘Safer at Home’ order, 22-thousand people would get sick with the coronavirus in the next two weeks and 15-hundred people would die.
As of yesterday, 457 people in Wisconsin are sick with the coronavirus. Just five have died. Palm said people need to take the governor’s order seriously. That order starts today.
The coronavirus count in Eau Claire County is up to five cases and here the message is echoed as well, City-County health director Lieske Giese is urging people to take Governor Evers’ Safer at Home order seriously.
