“New and Dangerous Phase.”
That’s how state health officials are describing the current COVID-19 situation in Wisconsin.
A month ago, Wisconsin was averaging about 660 new cases a day. Now, it’s 1,900 cases a day.
There’s been more than 2,000 new cases in the last 24 hours.
Governor Tony Evers pointed to the start of the school year for a near exponential growth in new cases.
Right now, the 18 to 24-year-old age group is seeing the largest increase in COVID-19 cases.
