No Answer Given Yet In Difference In COVID-19 Reporting

It’s still not clear if Fond du Lac County will see any noticeable COVID-19 spike as a result of the many sturgeon-related gatherings over the past few weeks. What’s even more unclear is why there’s such a large discrepancy in the positive COVID-19 cases listed on the Fond du Lac County Health Department website versus what’s listed on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services site.

Friday’s numbers on the county site showed an increase of 16 positive cases, and a total positive case count of 11,824. The DHS site shows Fond du Lac County with a total of 11,958, a difference of 134 cases. The DHS site also shows Fond du Lac County with 1,054 probable cases.

KFIZ News reached out to the Fond du Lac County Health Department on Thursday regarding the difference in reported numbers, but have yet to hear back from anyone in the department. Fond du Lac County reported two more COVID-19 related deaths on Friday, taking the total deaths in the county to 93.
