MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The Wisconsin Department of Health Services says confirmed coronavirus cases increased by 460 on Friday. That is the second day in a row of record-high infections.
The spike also marked the second day in a row that positive cases increased as a percentage of overall tests processed. Of the 3,632 tests processed on Thursday, 12.7% were positive.
That came after a 10.8% increase the day before.
In the day prior to that, the percentage of positive cases had declined. To date, 327 people have died from the virus in the state and more than 7,300 have tested positive.
