NEW EFFORTS ARE TAKEN BY STATE TO TRACE THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK IN MILWAUKEE
Close to A Hundred state health employees are now helping Milwaukee City and 2 other counties monitoring corona virus outbreak.
He State Department of Health Care has stationed its staff in Milwaukee, South Milwaukee and Wauwatosa to focus on case analysis and touch tracking, said Melissa Baldauff, spokeswoman for Governor.
Identifying cases of corona virus and monitoring their contacts — which basically means monitoring individuals who have come into touch with newly infected patients — can help to avoid the progression of the disease by notifying people who are susceptible to COVID-19 so that they can be easily quarantined.
Many of the recently deployed state health staff operate for the City of Milwaukee, which had about eight hundred reports as of Friday evening.
