WI CASE COUNT UP BY 144

WI CASE COUNT UP BY 144

Health officials confirm 144 new COVID-19 cases in the state in the last day. 

Six additional deaths are reported today.  In total nearly 12-thousand-700 people have tested positive in Wisconsin for the coronavirus.  The virus has killed 459 residents.

In other case count updates, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh say there is a connection between in-person voting and the spread of the coronavirus following the state’s primary election. 

Research led by UW economists and colleagues at Ball State University reveals what they call a “significant association” between people going to the polls and the spread of COVID-19.  The researchers analyzed county data and testing information and found that the counties with more in-person voters had a higher rate of COVID-19 positive tests two to three weeks after the April 7th primary.
