MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee County leaders say there's a potential for optimism despite the rising death rate to coronavirus.
County Executive Chris Abele says a revised model suggests the peak of the pandemic may be happening sooner than expected.
Another model created by the Medical College of Wisconsin shows even more optimistic projections.
"I'm thinking the quicker we can get to unfortunately the negative top of this point, the quicker we can start getting back to life as normal," said Mayor Tom Barrett.
Officials also said they're working with both the state and hospital systems to set up the planned hospital at State Fair Park.
Although they didn't have an exact opening date, more information is expected to be released during Thursday's report.
