Wisconsin COVID cases climbing, vaccines still proving effective


Wisconsin COVID-19 cases are climbing.

The state Department of Health Services is reporting nearly 1,300 new cases Monday.

It brings the seven-day average of new COVID cases to 2,862. That’s the just shy of average during the previous peak in September.

Throughout October, unvaccinated people continued to make up the vast majority of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

According to DHS, unvaccinated people are five times more likely to get COVID, 11 times more likely to be hospitalized, and 15 times more likely to die.

This is when compared to vaccinated people in the state.
