The death toll from the coronavirus in Wisconsin just jumped.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday reported 92 coronavirus deaths. That is the most in a single day since Wisconsin started tracking the virus back in March. Since March, just over 27 hundred people in the state have died with the virus. DHS’s numbers show that almost 80 percent of those deaths are among people older than 70-years-old.
When it comes to the vaccine, doctors, nurses, and people who work in nursing homes will be the first people in Wisconsin to get the new coronavirus vaccines.
The state’s Department of Health Services yesterday said they will prioritize who gets the vaccine when it becomes available. After healthcare workers, people who are most at risk for the virus will get a shot, then the general public will have the opportunity. DHS says it will be some time in 2021 before everyone is able to get the vaccine.
