Wisconsin Cases Continue Rise After Lockdown Ends

Newsweek reports:

Wisconsin’s coronavirus figures continue to rise with more than 300 newly confirmed cases as citizens return to normality after a stay-at-home order was lifted across the state.

Its cumulative cases throughout the pandemic rose to 11,275, with 373 of those recorded on Thursday, the third-largest daily peak for the month. The freshly reported cases are of infections that predate the end of Wisconsin’s lockdown.

The state had been under stay-at-home measures sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the conditions were removed after the state Supreme Court ruled against them in a 4-3 decision this week. After the measures were lifted, crowds were seen flocking to bars as they reopened.
