Wisconsin reports 632 virus cases as Christmas slows testing

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin has reported its lowest number of daily coronavirus cases in months after testing dropped over the Christmas holiday.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported 632 people tested positive for the coronavirus and four people died from COVID-19.

The tally of daily new cases has not dropped below 600 since the beginning of September, according to Johns Hopkins researchers.

However, health officials also reported the slowest day of testing since the spring, with a total of 5,893 tests processed.

The 10.7% positivity rate among tests reported on Saturday was higher than the 8.1% positivity rate of tests in the last seven days.
