Wisconsin passes 3,000 COVID-19 deaths


MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin has surpassed 3,000 COVID-19 deaths, adding about a third of that tally in November.

The State Department of Health Services reported 51 deaths on Saturday, bringing the state's death toll to 3,005 since the pandemic began.

The Journal Sentinel reports it took Wisconsin about five months from the beginning of the pandemic in March to hit 1,000 deaths, which happened on Aug. 11.

By Halloween, the state reached its second 1,000 deaths. Health officials reported 380 people have died since Sunday, making it the deadliest week of the pandemic in the state.
