According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, Wisconsin saw its peak on April 5, when 20 people died within 24 hours. What this means is it's believed Wisconsin saw the highest number of deaths that it has seen and will see during the pandemic.
However, IHME is predicting Wisconsin will see its peak resource use on Tuesday, April 14. On that day, they are predicting Wisconsin will need 112 ventilators, 522 beds, and 125 ICU beds. However, they're not predicting any shortages within our state.
In addition, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services reported Monday that they saw the lowest day-to-day increase in COVID-19 cases.
While IHME says Wisconsin has already seen its peak, they're also predicting that the U.S. will peak Monday. They're projecting a total of 2,150 deaths within 24 hours.
