Wisconsin reports record 7,497 new coronavirus cases and 58 deaths as the seven-day case average passes 6,000.
As Wisconsin reported yet another record-shattering day of COVID-19 cases Thursday, only 8% of intensive care unit beds remained available and health officials urged people to avoid even small gatherings heading into the holiday season.
The state Department of Health Services on Thursday reported a record 7,497 new cases and 58 deaths, bringing the death toll to 2,515.
The average positivity rate also hit a new high of 36.4% Thursday. The measure looks at first-time positive tests over the last seven days.
The average daily death toll over the last seven days was 46; two months ago, it was six.
Meanwhile the Republicans (primarily Assembly Speaker Robin Vos), who have done nothing since April, suggest that the governor needs to come up with some ideas on how to stop it! LOL!
