That accounted for more than 38,500 "new" cases on Sunday, which was 20,000-25,000 more than any other day. So you can expect that 7-day average to decline by around 3,000 or 4,000 when you next see it on Monday for that reason alone. But 13,000 cases a day is still double the previous record of 6,500 a day that we had in November 2020. That being said, the amount of Wisconsinites dying from COVID in this latest wave is less than half of what it was at the worst of 2020. the Dane County Department of Public Health showed this week. Despite a large increase in cases, the disparities were clear for December. increased absenteeism from work. And I certainly don't think we need to "respect the rights" of the people who are allowing this pandemic and the related crowding of hospitals to happen. We need to keep calling it out, because the data and the disparities are obvious, and it is threatening the economic Biden Boom that we saw for most of 2021.

Yes, there's a lot of COVID here. Vaxxed/boosted? It's merely annoying. But if not...
Hey look, Wisconsin is Number 1 in America! Oh wait...
