Health Officials Say Curve Has Flattened, But Need To Be Cautious

Governor Evers “Safer At Home” order is set to expire April 24, and while health officials claim we’re “flattening the curve” of new COVID-19 cases, they also warn against rolling back restrictions. 

Medical College of Wisconsin C-E-O Doctor John Raymond says the state currently ranks in the top 10 for its results.  Raymond says we need to see five benchmarks before returning to normal – sustained reduction in cases for two weeks, making tests available for everyone with symptoms, having the ability to treat all patients at a hospital without crisis standards, having adequate personal protective equipment for health care workers, and developing the ability to contact trace cases in real-time.
