Wisconsin, like every other state, in trending in the wrong direction. More so than other, it appears.


Just a month ago the state Department of Health Services was reporting an average case total in the double digits. Now, the state reports a seven-day average of over 1,000 cases a day as the state deals with the onslaught of the delta variant. 
"All of us were kind of hoping that we were coming to a new normal not even a little over a month ago when our numbers were so low," said Weston. 
But a month later, Wisconsin is the second-worst state in the nation in the 14-day increase in cases and fifth-worst in hospitalizations, according to data from state governments and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
