* Cases and deaths are taken from daily DHS COVID-19 reports, which may differ from local health department numbers. The Department of Homeland Security reports cases from all health departments within county boundaries, including tribal, municipal, and local health departments; County sites may not. Also, public health departments update their data at various times, while the Department of Homeland Security freezes the numbers it receives at the same time every day for an afternoon report.

The Department of Homeland Security has reported deaths attributed to or to which COVID-19 contributed to their deaths. Most of the people severely affected by the coronavirus have underlying diseases or conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease or obesity, which increase a person’s risk of dying from COVID-19. They would have lived longer had it not been for the infection. The state may review case and death numbers after further review, such as the place of residence of the victim, duplicate records, or correct laboratory results. Details can be found at DHS website And the Frequently asked questions.

** Michigan State does not update the numbers on Sunday. Monday’s numbers include updates since the reporting deadline is Saturday.

COVID-19 tracking app

Wisconsin COVID-19 Tracking App, “Wisconsin Exposure Notice” is Available For iOS and Android smartphones. No download required for iPhones. The Android app is available at Google apps. When two phones with the app (and presumably their owners) are close enough, for long enough, they will anonymously share a random string of numbers via bluetooth. If someone tests positive for coronavirus, they will receive a code to type in the app. If your phones have “connected” to each other in the last 14 days, you will receive instant notification that you are at risk of exposure. The app does not collect personal information or location information, so you will not know who or where, but you will be informed of the day the exposure may have occurred so that you can quarantine for an appropriate period of time.
