Wisconsin reports 805 daily COVID-19 cases per 1 million residents

-

The number of daily coronavirus cases per million people in Wisconsin stood at 805 as of Nov. 30, the 11th highest rate among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, according to a new analysis from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF).

The total number of cases recorded in the state was 409,054, according to the Kaiser data, and the number of cumulative deaths in Wisconsin stood at 3,487.

Controlling the virus spread requires the federal government and the states to take strong actions, including the implementation of social distancing measures, reducing barriers to COVID-19 testing and ensuring adequate treatment capacity, according to the KFF analysis.

The KFF data includes tracking information on which states have imposed behavioral restrictions after recent spikes in cases, including capacity limits on gatherings, travel restrictions and more constraints on bars and restaurants.

The foundation is a nonprofit group that partners with news organizations and examines national health issues, as well as the nation’s advocacy positions on the global health stage.
