One of my readers found this data in a tweet from twitter.com/SeanTrende. He was also concerned by reports about increases in cases in Wisconsin, but was able to find the percent positive rate of the state’s testing.
As you can see, the rate of positive tests continues to decrease. This suggests that the increase in positive tests is the result of more tests being performed, not an increase in infections.
Another person followed hospitalizations and deaths during a similar time frame and found no spike.
While the numbers have to be monitored going forward to assure that there is not a resurgence, currently there is no evidence of a “second wave” in Wisconsin caused by the end of social distancing.
