Covid Cases Decline in Wisconsin But Concerns Over Holidays Rise

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin has reported a decline in coronavirus cases, but health officials worry that holiday gatherings could undo recent progress in slowing infections.

Over the past two weeks, the rolling average number of daily new cases has decreased by 5.2%. But the state has still reported the nation’s sixth-highest number of new cases in that time. Roughly one in every 139 people has tested positive in the past week.
