COVID-19 Realistic Statistics for 8/12, shortage of testing supplies

• Bookmarks: 2429

Sheboygan County: Since yesterday, 140 tests were returned with 5 positive for a percentage of 3.57%.

According to the Sheboygan County Division of Public Health, health care providers are reporting that they are receiving fewer COVID-19 testing supplies. National testing supplies are being diverted to other priority areas within the US. This may lead to positive cases appearing to be lower than they actually are, as fewer people will be able to get tested. Those with symptoms should get tested and isolate while waiting for results. Testing information can be found here.

The 50-59 group had the highest increase again at +2.

Positive cases statewide today are at 5% – the same as yesterday. Deaths are down to 5 reported today
