WISCONSIN — There are now 631 positive cases of coronavirus in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services said there have been over 10,000 negative tests.

There has been seven deaths due to COVID-19. Four people have died in Milwaukee County, one in Dane County, one in Fond du Lac County and one in Ozaukee County.

On Monday, Gov. Evers announced he would sign a 'Safer From Home' order on Tuesday, asking Wisconsinites to stay at home except for essential travel.

DHS secretary Andrea Palm said that without the Safer at Home order, public health officials predicted that 22,000 people in Wisconsin would contract the virus by April 8. During that time period, between 440 and 1,500 deaths would happen.

The DHS Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ryan Westergaard said that of the total COVID-19 cases, "We believe that number is higher, probably as high as 20 percent."
