WISCONSIN — According to the Wisconsin Department of Health (DHS), 36% of Wisconsin COVID-19 patients were between the ages of 40 and 59.

DHS gathered all of their COVID-19 data and broke it down by age group. Now, we can see who has been impacted most by this virus.

The data shows that those 18% of all COVID-19 patients were between the ages of 40 and 49. Another 18% were between the ages of 50 and 59. These two age groups add up to be a total of 2,454 cases.

Following close behind is the 30 to 29 age group, which accounts for 16% of all cases in Wisconsin. From there, there's the 20 to 29 age group which is 15% of all cases. Then, we have 60 to 69 which is a solid 14%.

70 to 79 year olds account for 8% of all cases, while 80 to 89 years olds count for 5%. Those Wisconsinites above the age of 90 count for 2% and anyone under the age of 19 counts towards the last 4%.

Now, while all age groups are being affected by this virus, it appears the most affected are those of us between the ages of 20 and 70.
