MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- No COVID-19 deaths have been reported for a second day in a row in Wisconsin for the first time since early September.
The last time Wisconsin went two or more days without a single reported death from the coronavirus was the three-day stretch of Sept. 6 through Sept. 8.
The state's seven-day average of new cases as reported by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services was at its lowest point since early July, but it increased marginally from Sunday.
The seven-day average on Monday was 612, up from 610 the day before. Nearly 560,000 people in Wisconsin have tested positive for COVID-19 and 6,284 have died of the disease since the pandemic started.
