WISCONSIN — The Wisconsin Department of Health Services has reported the lowest increase in day-to-day COVID-19 cases in nearly three weeks.
According to the Department of Health Services secretary, the number of COVID-19 cases increased by 87 on Monday. That number is the lowest Wisconsin has seen since March 24, when an increase of 41 cases was announced.

For comparison's sake, the most new cases that DHS announced on any single day was 199 on April 1.
These 87 new cases suggest that Wisconsin's 'Safer at Home' approach is working, DHS Secretary-designee Andrea Palm said Monday.
"We have actually seen a decrease in the exponential growth as the result of Safer at Home," Palm said. "We are flattening the curve."
Dr. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and the federal government announced a few weeks ago that the week of April 5-11 could be the worst when it comes to COVID-19 cases.
As of Monday, there have been 3,428 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Wisconsin. 154 people have died, and 36,769 people have tested negative.
Wisconsin reported lowest day-to-day increase in #COVID19 cases yesterday (128) since March 30th (109). Never more than 199 new cases day-to-day (April 1). We are on the front end of the window for a spike if election has an influence. New numbers from DHS due out today. @tmj4 pic.twitter.com/OgHJYGpZeg— Vince Vitrano (@vincevitrano) April 13, 2020
