Why is Sheboygan County so much healthier? What are we doing wrong. They only have 5 active cases right now, with nobody in the hospital. We have 10 times as many active.

Very difficult to isolate variables impacting total cases, case rates ect. One hotspot can create multiple cases in isolation at a set point in time. I'm not sure you can statistically compare counties and correlate. Winnebago and Dodge counties have similar statistics as FDL. Sheboygan could be a statistical outlier. You could also ask why are Milwaukee and Racine so impacted....and relate a litany of possible answers. Good news is percentage of positive cases continues to drop across WI.
